Billy the Kid: First Exhumation
What a kid, that Billy, but he's not all this play is about. He is simply the catalyst for a show that is driven by some intriguing stories and delightful ensemble work. the stories begin with Billy, of course, we learn of his early life and most likely how he ended up the way he did, dead, too young. What a shame Billy couldn't stick to his mother's advice about keeping on the straight and narrow, but the world is full of temptations. This show uses Billy to illustrate how people's lives can be altered by the most unlikely incidents. Do we cause events to happen, or are we simply along for the ride? these four actors/characters help us to understand Billy, certainly, but also, through their stories, show us how often unexpected encounters end in consequences we could never predict. For example, a six year old boy steals candy at the grocery store and is apprehended by his mother. She sends him back to return it where he is rewarded by the clerk for his honesty with a piece of the candy; not punished for stealing. He learns that being a thief can be a good thing.
