August 30 - September 9
The Winnipesaukee Playhouse Professional Company Presents
The Man who Shot Liberty Valance
By Jethro Compton
from the short story by Dorothy M. Johnson
with the voice of Robert Vaughn
John Ford’s classic western brought to the stage!
Journey into the Wild West in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance. A tale of love, hope and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society. When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life, he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice: to turn and run or to stand for what he believes, to live or to fight; to become the man who shot Liberty Valance.
