Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage

By Jane Martin

Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre presents "Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage". Rob Bob is a young, somewhat busted up rodeo cowboy who's convalescing at the homestead of Big 8, his overripe girlfriend. Their relatively peaceable love nest is shattered late one night when a pierced, pregnant punker gal named Shedevil arrives desparate on the doorstep, hotly pursued by her homicidal biker ex-boyfriend, Black Dog. Bloodshed ensues, followed by a frenzied attempt at cleaning up the mess before the visiting sheriff catches anything ill adrift. Subtitled "A 'B' Western Horror Flick for the Stage", this is black comedy at its most hilarious. (Not suitable for younger children.)
