Axis Company presents HIGH NOON, an adaptation of the 1952 Western film, devised by an ensemble led by Artistic Director Randy Sharp. In Axis’ HIGH NOON, the Wild West is not the place of heroes and rollicking adventure, but a landscape of overbearing nothingness where humans, and their troubled moral compasses, are cast in glaring light. As a town awaits the alleged return, and potential revenge streak, of a released murderer on an incoming train, their just-married, retiring marshal decides to try to rally a crowd to fight him. Time cruelly continues to pass, and to presumably carry the dangerous figure along his collision course with the town and its former marshal, who considers, and over-considers, his very uncertain fate.
