"High Plains" by Brian Watkins - 5/16 at 8PM ($15)

Part of Wide Eyed's "Dark Night" series at the Richmond Shepard Theatre

SYNOPSIS: Set on the dark and expansive Colorado Plains, this one-man confession tells the story of Jake, a young drifter, who is haunted by a cruel childhood secret that has finally caught up with him.

REVIEWS: FOUR STARS! "Watkins is a gorgeous writer...from the moment the lights go up, you somehow know you're in for a sad and sordid treat." -TimeOutNY

"Like a modern-day campfire ghost story... Watkins has written a disturbing, thought-provoking tale with an ending that is guaranteed to inspire debate and reflection. There's no reason to miss out on such an effective evening of theatre." -NYTheatre.com

Brian Watkins previously worked with Wide Eyed on The Prarie Plays in 2010.  He recently completed a very exciting new play about American business called GENERAL STORE, which he is thrilled to say will be part of the 2012 Seven Devils Playwrights Conference, where they will be developing and presenting the piece in June. His play MY DAUGHTER KEEPS OUR HAMMER is currently in development with b. swibel presents and Playing Pretend Productions, with plans for a production in New York for 2013. Brian is also working on a feature film in development with b. swibel presents, as well as a commission with Aruba Productions that will go into rehearsals this fall.
