THUNDER BAY, ON --- April 15, 2-13 ---- Outlaw tells the story of a young Canadian homesteader travelling far from home who finds himself accused of murder in the state of Kansas in 1871. With only his wits to defend himself, he turns the law of the land – and the men Hell bent on enforcing it – upside down. This authentic western is a unique take on the days when guns were the law. Is he guilty or just in the wrong place at the wrong time?
The play showcases the enthusiastic performances of Gabe "Rattlesnake" Ferrazo, Alex "Johnny Rev" Jecchinis, Norm "Plato" McDougall and Will "Gunless" Perry.
Beverley Gravelle-MacLeod, director of Norm Foster’s Outlaw, says that in the case of this play at least, boys will be boys. “One thing I’ve noticed about the fellows in rehearsals is that grown men are never too old to want to play at being cowboys. The guys have embraced these characters and have fully committed to being as authentic as possible in re-enacting the American Old West."
Outlaw is the third play that Gravelle-MacLeod has directed for the Cambrian Players. She directed I Hate Hamlet last season and The Wild Guys in 2008. I Hate Hamlet also starred Ferrazzo and Jecchinis.
Outlaw is the last production of the Cambrian Players for its 2012/13 season and will be playing at the Paramount Theatre May 2-11. Show dates are May 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11, all at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and $20 on Friday and Saturday. Tickets available at Fireweed, Steepers, Calico, & door.
