CHRISTOPHER CARTMILL

THE NEBRASKA DISPATCHES

Going home can be the greatest adventure, especially when you're not sure whose home it is. Christopher Cartmill & Christine Marie Brown's adaptation of Cartmill's Nebraska journal — a solo theatrical piece. Commissioned to write a play about the historic trial of Chief Standing Bear, a writer naively steps into the contemporary Native American world and the place he once called home. A personal, political and spiritual journey filled with humor, unlikely connections, almost Dickensian characters, a very small car and profound revelations about home and the power and responsibility of stories and the storyteller. (Solo performance)  AND THE MEMOIR WILL SOON BE PUBLISHED BY UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS!
