The Return of Draw Egan
- Saturday, February 20, 2016 7:00 p.m.
Presented with live orchestral accompanimentThe notorious masked bandit of the American Wild West, “Draw” Egan, narrowly escapes a posse of lawmen during a shootout with him and his gang. He flees to the town of Yellow Dog where he assumes the new identity of William Blake (yes, the same name as the English poet and protagonist in Jim Jarmusch’s western, Dead Man). After winning a brawl with a lawless character, he is offered the job of marshal. With eyes for the mayor’s daughter, he accepts and begins cleaning up the town, though it is not long before Egan’s past catches up to him.
