Saturday's Warrior is a Mormon-themed musical written by Douglas Stewart and Lex de Azevedo. The musical tells the story of a group of children that are born into a Mormon family after making various promises in the pre-existence. Two of the children, Jimmy and Julie, encounter personal struggles that help them rediscover and fulfill their foreordained missions in life. Although an explicit time frame is not given in the dialogue, certain contextual clues (in particular, a song that demonizes the Zero population growth movement) suggest that the story takes place in the late 1960s or early 1970s. The musical explores the Mormon doctrines of pre-existence, foreordination, and eternal marriage. It depicts abortion and birth control as being contrary to the divine plan of salvation.
