What is it?
Gun, a new comedy western about one man’s journey of defiance and reconciliation as he is chased across the Wild West, will be performed at this year’s VAULT Festival.
Meet Roscoe Porter, a rugged gun-slinger who wakes up in a dirty saloon in some frontier western town. He doesn’t remember anything from the previous night of cards, drinking and cheating, but then he never does. However, he is called into action to perform a vital task in the name of family honour.
This goofy Western follows Roscoe on his quest and adventures across the Wild West, where we meet many many more of the characters associated with the genre, and perhaps some new ones. If Roscoe fails in his task, a lot of people will die, the consequences of which would re-shape and re-write the history of gun warfare.
Combining comedy, whisky, true grit and gunpowder, as well as a creative original score and a multitude of characters, this production is about the search for one’s honour and purpose in life (and maybe death), with a whole lot of shooting along the way.
Gun is created and performed by William Hartley, directed by Phil Croft, and includes original music created by Ben Lloyd Evans.
