The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky was performed December 5th – 10th of the year 1966.
Stephen Crane’s western story of the fateful day, marshal Jack Potter, brings his new bride back home to Yellow Sky is a recognized classic of American literature. In addition, at the urging of that great man of the theater, Herbert Berghoff, playwright Frank Crocitto has transformed the story into a perfect gem of a play. Also,with a few deft poetical strokes Crocitto evokes the whole world of the fading wild west through the outer struggle of two old friends to adjust to outer changes as well as changes in their relationship. Lastly, the play has been performed continually around the world since its appearance in 1970.
