March 11-12….“A Way in the West” Women on the American Frontier - The frontier of the American west was the great equalizer. It was where people were known for what they could do, not for who they were or where they came from. It was the open door for the disadvantaged, the displaced, and the disappointed, an asylum for the immigrants and the freedmen and all the other refugees from the civilized side. It was also where nineteenth-century women got their first taste of equality. “A Way in the West” is a ninety-minute, one-act play in which six of those women tell their stories, and in the telling of how and why they came west, also tell how women and the frontier remade one another. Using letters, diaries, and autobiographies, playwright Andy Wilkinson has drawn the words and music from the voices of the women themselves. Actress Trudy Fair gives those voices life. RSVP is required to attend, as there is limited seating available. Attendance is free for RHA members, $10 per person for non-members. Please contact Emily Arellano at 806.742.0498 or to RSVP. National Ranching Heritage Center 6666 Barn, 3121 Fourth Street; at 7 p.m. with a reception following.
