Actor Bill Pullman writes and performs in this brand-new play exploring the life of turn-of-the-century "cowboy artist," storyteller and author, Charlie Russell. Tickets to the premiere of this innovative play at McNichols Civic Center Building Aug. 2, 4 p.m. include a talk back with Bill Pullman and team.

"Seeking Charlie Russell is not a biographical work, it is an expedition into the essence of a man bearing witness to ages ends, an artist more at home night-herding in the coulees than schmoozing in a London gallery. I find this project intriguing as we are not going to tell a story so much as attempt to come to an understanding." -Jack Pullman (Object Designer)
