Two Men. One Journey.
A world premiere that transforms the Wyly Theatre's intimate Studio Theatre into a Costco—the heart of the New American West. Steps away from the Lewis and Clark trail, the lives of a fledgling writer and a descendant of William Clark intersect as they stock televisions and cheese puffs. In a story leavened with humor and compassion, these two young men move toward an uncertain and unpredictable future, realizing that sometimes the most important journey you can take is the one between two people.
Written by 2014 MacArthur Foundation Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, one of the most provocative new voices in American theater, Clarkston continues DTC’s commitment to bringing the nation’s most exciting writers to Dallas.
