Flaming Guns Of The Purple Sage

Performed September 11-14, 2008 | The Barn Theatre @ Winthrop

FLAMING GUNS OF THE PURPLE SAGE is a sadistic, satirical play written by Jane Martin. It is described as a “B” Western Horror Flick for the stage.

Big 8, a feisty rodeo competitor, is a bitter critter, facing foreclosure on the Wyoming ranch where she rehabilitates injured rodeo cowboys. The arrival of a shocking woman named Shedevil and a one-eyed Ukranian biker named Black Dog ushers in outrageous violence and horror in this shoot ’em up, knock ’em up, cut ’em up comic romp that roasts the cowboy mentality of pulp western writers like Zane Grey.

“Borrows a heap of corniness from the B movie Westerns and mixes a few pieces of horror in this hilarious, rip snortin’, and effusively bloody play.” – Playbill.com
