Journey into the Wild West, 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, of law versus the gun, of one man versus Liberty Valance. A tale of love, hope and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society.
When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home as he finds the love of a local girl. This love gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice:
to turn and run or to stand for what he believes, to live or to fight…
to become the man who shot Liberty Valance.
‘They travelled west for gold, hope and liberty.
Liberty’s exactly what they’re gonna get.’
Based on the short story by the award winning Western fiction author
Dorothy M. Johnson (The Hanging Tree and A Man Called Horse).
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance premiered in 2014 at Park Theatre, London.
Productions are currently scheduled across Canada and the United States of America.
