  The Virginian: A Horseman Of The Plains at City Lit Theater

The Virginian: A Horseman Of The Plains

City Lit Theater
1020 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue Chicago

A world premiere adaptation of the novel that originated the archetype of the American cowboy. Never named, rough-hewn but soft-spoken, living on the frontier between nature and civilization, the Virginian pursues his own singular code of honor. On a ranch near Sunk Creek, Wyoming, the cowpuncher from Virginia struggles to uphold this code in conflict with his deadly enemy, a former ranch hand turned rustler, as well as in his courting of the fiercely independent schoolmarm, whose own personal code is as strong as his. City Lit's adaptation will feature giant puppets as the horses in the story, a few of whom are important minor characters, to be designed by Von Orthal Puppets, creator of the puppets that represented the gods in City Lit's world premiere translation of Aeschylus's PROMETHEUS BOUND two seasons ago.
