IN THE CANYON is a new American saga by Calamity West spanning from 2007 to 2067. In an exploration of the present attack on Roe v. Wade, this world premiere chronicles a story of survival, and imagines the decline of a broken society. When the sun begins to set on a shattered world, the canyon rocks and walls come alive and a story of resistance is birthed.

REVIEWS

IN THE CANYON

"a rush of an Orwellian dystopian drama"


"[West's] themes include the creep of fascism, the demonizing of the opposition and, ultimately, the creation of an alternate reality, all of us having been slowly Keyser Soze’d..."


"...a prairie-style antidote to the overeducated elitist writers"


"...an essential Chicago-style voice."

IN THE CANYON

"Playwright Calamity West...has emerged as a leading aesthetic innovator of storefront realism as well as a tough-as-nails moralist....West's ominous new drama...is the center of something extraordinary."
