The American cowboy. Hero or villain? Casanova or colonizer? Either way, his myth rides on. And in this rural Montana town, everyone must reckon with his long, stooped shadow. But Brucie has other plans. The resident 13-year-old with an appetite for apocalypse is throwing a birthday party. The theme: DOOMSDAY. Be there…or else.

A weekend workshop on Decolonizing Your Nonprofit…a woman who de-taxidermies buffalo heads…the difficulties of romancing a cowboy… A Different Long Stretch of Earth is a play about the American West, and how the mythologies and mindsets of our collective past shape our ability to envision the future.
