LONE RIDERS is a new work that will be premiered as a Production Workshop. Written by Carol Wright Krause, it's a story of love, war and art. 

 The action takes place over a period of two days in August 1865 in a yard behind a stagecoach way station near Fort Cottonwood, a military outpost in the Nebraska Territory.
