Revenge of the wild west

Ann Arbor’s Performance Network frequently presents plays and musicals that have been field tested, and highly successful, on Broadway, often long running Tony Award winners. Their spring offering,  Joseph Zettelmaier’s Dead Man’s Shoes, is different – a world premiere. Zettelmaier, who teaches dramatic composition at Eastern Michigan University, is a prolific playwright with a number of award winning plays to his credit and "Dead Man’s Shoes” has already won a 2011 Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award. The dark comedy takes place in 1883 in the American Wild West, but Zettelmaier’s explorations of the themes of vengeance and conscience resonate equally powerfully in the play’s fictional past and in our own present day struggles with the multiple faces of terrorism. Due to adult language and content the production is recommended for mature audiences only. $27-$41. Times and dates vary.
March 8 to April 8. Performance Network, 120 E. Huron St. 734-663-0681.
