Ruth: A Musical Comedy in Three Acts

In 1886 Ruth Bowen, a widow from New York City, makes her way with her mother-in-law Naomi to Utah where she encounters Benjamin Bowen, Naomi’s brother-in-law and prominent Salt Lake City businessman.  Ruth’s eastern fashions and New York City charm create a sensation.  As Benjamin moves to fulfill his next-of-kin “obligation” to take Ruth as his fourth wife, he is forced to flee the city pursued by federal marshals.  Benjamin and Ruth later attempt a rendezvous, which leads to Benjamin’s arrest and extended prison term.  While still in prison Benjamin proposes marriage, but the “Manifesto” of 1890 stands in the way.  A secret ceremony is still possible, but Ruth takes a train home to New York City.  Benjamin’s attempts to pursue her are circumvented by his Gentile creditors’ threat of foreclosure on mortgaged property.  Fate has seemingly made their separation permanent, but then, in an unlikely turn of events, the two lovers’ paths unexpectedly cross….
