Come see how Butch Cassidy’s girlfriend, Etta Place lived her life after Butch and Sundance’s escapades in Bolivia when TorC Community Theatre presents Lantern in the Wind during Elephant Butte’s Elephant Days Celebration, September 9 through 11.
The story is about Etta Place who was “once a schoolteacher, later a bandit, always a friend of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.”
The play is set in a lonely mountain cabin in Utah. The other characters are Etta’s cousin Clara, a hard-crusted pioneer woman, and Florence Kilpatric, a female newspaper reporter in the days when female newspaper reporters were rare, but nevertheless highly skillful in probing into the emotional side of the news.
Is the story in Lantern in the Wind true? Are all the tales and exploits of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid true? Who can tell for certain what is real and what is legend?
This play features the talents of Susie Wisdom (Etta), Linda Larsen (Clara) and Leslie McKinney (Florence). This dramatic presentation will be shown on stage at the Elephant Butte Community Center, (behind the fire station) Friday, September 9 at 7 pm and Saturday, September 10 at 2 pm. Entry to this production is by donation.
