Cowboy Elektra

Encounter a dusty crossroads where California history and Greek tragedy collide. Set in a saloon in 1869, Elektra’s investigation of her father’s death leads to a tragic revenge plot against her mother. This modern, feminist tale explores cycles of violence and control, and features original songs, a mostly female ensemble, vintage puppetry, and multimedia. The Rogue Artists Ensemble debuts a visual, emotional collage that asks how much can we truly control our fate.
