Attorney from the east coast Prairie Mason arrives on the stagecoach to the Old West town of Chicken Gizzard Gulch when he is called in to defend a widow who’s chicken baron husband is hen pecked to death by his own chickens and fowl play is suspected.


Juvenile Series detective Nancy Doo is on the case when the wealthiest man in town is found dead riding on a turkey on the town holiday carousel after he announces he is closing down the Nobody’s Perfect White Out manufacturer and replacing it with the world’s largest miniature golf course!

Presented by Eclectic Theater.

Powerful performances –especially from Allie Pratt and Marcus Wolland– bring a lot to this great, historic tale of a powerful woman “ahead of her time?” or just doing what strong women do …again and again. Support your local theatre artists! – Victor Janusz

Clara is brilliant, beautiful, perhaps the finest pianist of her time, the trophy child of her father, the lover/ mother/caretaker of her equally brilliant but mentally ill husband, the mother of seven children, a target for her enemy’s seduction and attacks, the pure love object of one of the greatest composers of all times.

This production is being presented under the auspices of the Actors’ Equity Association Members’ Project Code.
