OF JESSE JAMES
Created and Directed by Brenna Geffers
A posse of women takes on America’s most infamous outlaw in a deadly roadshow. There is an unnamed, unmarked, underground saloon where, between the dime shows and the strong drinks, the legend of Jesse James will be stripped down for your enjoyment. Jesse James was originally staged in an installation set that brought audiences into a dime museum saloon. With sawdust on the floor, and hundreds of pieces of taxidermy, frontier cloths, guns, and other western memorabilia, audiences were free to bring in their drinks from a full bar and explore the space before the show began.
