2023 - Outlaw

A young Canadian homesteader travelling far from home finds himself accused of murder in the state of Kansas in 1871. With only his wits to defend himself, he turns the law of the land – and the men hell-bent on enforcing it – upside down. This authentic western is a new take on the days when guns were the law. Don’t miss this thrilling play by Norm Foster filled with twists and turns with an actual barn, nestled at the top of the Niagara escarpment, as our setting – offering another unique, site-specific theatre experience for Foster Festival audiences!
