3 Frontier women in a fight with a shotgun

About the Show

California-bound and down on her luck, Emmy Fox finds refuge working for a widowed shopkeeper and her two daughters. But they soon discover that the past can follow you over miles and years, and secrets can be as dangerous as any hazard of the Wyoming frontier.

Patchwork Drifter is a graduate of our Fighting Words program (2013).

“In her dialogue Mickelson is able to seamlessly weave nuanced, diverse, complex, sympathetic, and credible versions of male subjectivity into her script without ever having male characters appear on stage: a hurdle over which the most gifted playwrights, both male and female, have tripped.” —AROUND THE TOWN CHICAGO
