Written by Wayne Harrel
Direction by Jamie Rea
Technical Direction by Jerry Green
A high-tech, wild west performance based on the true story of French-Canadian frontiersman Louis Remme who raced on horseback from Sacramento to Portland in six days to rescue his life’s savings from a bank gone bust in 1855. Meanwhile, Remme’s trailhand pals escort his faro-dealing lady love north by steamboat, making their own justice with wit, cunning and crooked cards. This anticipated world premiere is a daring, diverse and interactive adventure ride.
CoHo Productions with Wayne Harrel co-present the full-length world premiere of Remme’s Run after it’s ambitious and well-received RACC-funded workshop production staged at Portland Playhouse in the 2014 Fertile Ground Festival.
