THE FIERCE CLOCKWORK OF DESTINY

A comedy adventure melodrama about the James Gang’s botched robbery in Northfield, Minnesota, as recreated by the foppish Augustus C. Appler, successful author of dime novels.  Fast-moving, event-filled, the play tells the story of the robbery and deals with the American process whereby history becomes myth.

This play was produced by the Great American History Theatre.  Here’s a sample scene.  For more information, and the complete text, please contact John.
