VOL. II: THE CLOCK STRIKES NOON
Trapped, guns near empty, the clock is ticking. Walker must make the choice: to do what’s easy, or to do what’s right. The railroad shines like a beacon of the modern age; for the people of Cooper’s Ridge, it brings only darkness.

Part of The Frontier Trilogy: three one act plays with the all the drama, atmosphere and exctiement of the Old West. The plays can each be performed seperately, or together as part of the complete trilogy.

"Tense and terse...it’s satisfying to drink in the whisky-soaked ambience." - Time Out Edinburgh 


The Clock Strikes Noon premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland in August 2015 under the direction of Jethro Compton.
