The Prairie Plays: High Plains & My Daughter Keeps Our Hammer
by Brian Watkins
directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann and Anthony Reimer
Two resonant and eerie fables, HIGH PLAINS and MY DAUGHTER KEEPS OUR HAMMER, explore questions of myth, family, heritage, faith and fear in very different ways. These ain’t your typical Westerns. High Plains- Set on the dark and expansive Colorado plains, this one-man confession tells the story of Jake, a young drifter, who is haunted by a cruel childhood secret that has finally caught up with him. My Daughter Keeps Our Hammer- Two clashing sisters agree on only one thing: they hate the family sheep, their mother's only friend. In this eerie tale that treads the line between humor and horror, tradition takes a turn for the worse, as the family attempts to domesticate the last remaining member of their former flock and ends up with a tragic twist of fate.
