"They travelled west for gold, hope and liberty. Liberty's exactly what they're gonna get"

Journey into the Wild West, 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, of law versus the gun, of one man versus Liberty Valance

A tale of love, hope and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society

When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees

But the town soon becomes his home as he finds the love of a local girl

This love gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead?

He must make the choice - to turn and run or to stand for what he believes

To live or to fight

To become The Man who shot Liberty Valance


" a genuinely gripping drama and one I warmly recommend" ~ Charles Spencer, Telegraph ★★★★

"Jethro Compton writes and directs this string of well-loved tropes which stays just on the safe side of pastiche, and makes a compelling cowboy tale set out on the edge of civilisation, where the gun is law, the whiskey is copious but dreadful, and all's fair in a fair fight" ~ Exeunt Magazine

" Compton brings out the humour in his script as well as building up its melodramatic moments to create a lively entertainment that is engagingly presented" ~ British Theatre Guide
