About the Play
Trouble is afoot in the Old West! As fear, frustration, and bodies mount, the townspeople of Golpher Gulch unite against their common enemy: Sneaky Fitch, a local townsman who refuses to die. Sneaky Fitch is a no-good, drunken, brawling nuisance. When he falls ill and apparently dies, there are few tears among the citizens of Gopher Gulch. But when Sneaky rises from his coffin, no one dares confront a man who has come back from the dead.
