Old West Melodrama presents The Insurance Man Cometh
Old West Melodrama will bring back crowd favorite, The Insurance Man Cometh. In the company’s original play, audience members will meet hero Dashing Dan and heroine Purity Pureheart, a young couple trying to scratch out a living running a hotel in Gopher Gulch. When Purity inherits $500 from her deceased father, villains Ponzie Makeoff and Dee Lylah happen to come into town with a huge insurance scam. The townspeople’s only hope lies in Purity’s mother Lavender Bouquet, who must convince Rook, an aged ex-con and former hitman, to come out of retirement and foil the duo’s plans.
The play was written by Old West Melodrama’s late founder, Joe Cole, with his daughter Jennifer Adams. The dinner theatre is an interactive experience – and popcorn throwing and audience participation are encouraged.
