by John Murrell
A frontier melodrama – Cowboys, wild women, saloons, and the beckoning Western frontier: these are the larger-than-life ingredients of Murrell’s hugely entertaining reflection on nation-building, women’s identities, and the meaning of “West.” On the lam from 19th-century morality, possessive lovers, and conventional wisdom, brothel-madam May Buchanan strikes out in search of peace and freedom “farther west.”
Guest Director – Michael Boucher
February 10 – 26, 2000
Audience advice: Farther West contains nudity, violence, suggestive scenes and strong language.
