Last Drive to Dodge

By Andrew Lee Creech

Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton

WORLD PREMIERE in partnership with The Hansberry Project.

Prophet and Ro are chasing dreams faintly whispered on the wind that sweeps the dusty Texas plain, where ranching is brutal work and change is on the horizon. Set at the end of the Cowboy Golden Age, Last Drive to Dodge examines race, love, and legacy in a time when everyone is scrambling for their piece of the American Dream.

  • Sensitivity Warning: Use of inoperable rifle seen on set; strong language. Last Drive to Dodge contains strong language not typically heard from the Taproot stage. The words used have been thoughtfully considered and negotiated between the playwright, director, and Taproot leadership to ensure that only the essential uses are included. The language is historically accurate and, while strong, is necessary to maintain the dramatic truth of the play and to truthfully depict this rarely portrayed historic moment. Great pains have been taken to honor the story, the history, and you—the audience. We share this as a courtesy so you know the intention and deliberation behind this and know what to expect.
