UPCOMING IN THE SHOTGUN PLAYERS' 26TH SEASON

BLACK RIDER

THE CASTING OF THE MAGIC BULLETS
Wilhelm, a lowly clerk, will do anything to marry the woman of his dreams. He must prove to her father that he has the skills of a hunter. What to do? Along comes Pegleg with an offer he cannot refuse. With music by Tom Waits this adaptation by William S. Burroughs will be a wild ride through the forest. Director Mark Jackson comments: “I see The Black Rider as a fairytale for adults, allowing us to explore how our fears and self doubts lead us to compromise our integrity for the sake of achieving our hopes and dreams. Why make a deal with the devil? Is it ever worth it?” 
Music and Lyrics by Tom Waits
Text by William S. Burroughs
Directed by Mark Jackson
Musical Direction by David Möschler
