Chromatic Theatre presents
Cowboy Versus Samurai by Michael Golamco
Directed by Jenna Rodgers
Rehearsals: Oct 20 – Nov 13
Run: Nov 13 – Nov 22
Cowboy Versus Samurai is a modern-day comedic take on the Edmond Rostad classic, Cyrano de Bergerac. Our protagonist is Travis Park, and his source of self-doubt is race, not an exceptionally large nose. Travis is the only Korean American in the dusty cowboy town of Breakneck, Wyoming. When the beautiful and clever Veronica Lee moves to town to fill the post of science teacher, he’s immediately smitten – until she reveals that she only dates white men. Travis must choose whether to ally with the “cowboy”: the handsome gym teacher, Del; or the “samurai”: best friend, and militant Asian of unknown origin, Chester. He must choose between the Asian and the American within himself in the pursuit for love that may only be as real as the love letters he writes on behalf of someone else.
• Del (M): Ruggedly handsome gym teacher. Part Cowboy, part deadbeat. 20s-30s.
