Play: Dead Man's Shoes at Performance Network

We saw Dead Man's Shoes at Performance Network last night. I really enjoyed it - more than the reviewer at It is at times bizarre, hilarious, touching and sad. There are kindly sheriffs, one-eyed bartenders, harlots with secrets and some actual Western history in the form of Wyoming governor John Eugene Osborne and "Big Nose" George. There is even, for those into such things, a female character from the Farrow Islands.

Dead Man's Shoes is not the best Performance Network show ever, but it is securely above the median, and well worth the time.
