Utah is known for being one of the most conservative states in the country and for housing the headquarters of the Mormon church. But it was also recently the temporary home of “What Would You Do?” We staged scenarios to test people’s reactions to ethical dilemmas in Brigham City, Pleasant Grove and Salt Lake City.
Our scenarios ran the gamut, tackling everything from domestic abuse to theft to sex before marriage to racism. The reactions of bystanders witnessing these scenes staged by “What Would You Do” actors may surprise you. Check out a preview of one of our scenarios — a parent’s intolerant reaction to his son coming out of the closet — below, and watch the whole show Friday at 9 p.m. ET.
