A MAD and DUSTY OPERETTA,
Set in the GLORIOUS WILD WEST!
"And woe upon the people of Absalom, for on that same Sunday morning that Don Carlos rode into town, so too arrived Don Enrique de Espada, Il Lupo Bianco, the infamous Baron of Bones up and down the Wide Western Frontier..."
In the sin-ridden town of Absalom, two demonic robber barons play a very strange game of chess for very high stakes. Packed with physical antics, song, dance, a live Spaghetti Western band, and a barrage of Faulkner references; "Goodnight, Absalom!" examines the big business of cultural polarization in America with a uniquely dark wit.
"Goodnight, Absalom!" was safely created and filmed by a twelve-person cast at the Lookout Arts Quarry in August of 2020. When it is possible to tour live theatre once again, the show will take to the road. Partly made possible by a generous donation from ArtsWA and Allied Arts of Whatcom County.
