America is restless.
The land is giving up its bounty.
And in California, the glint of gold sets pulses racing.
As a nation goes in search of riches, Ben Rumson stakes his claim. A dusty scrap of wilderness becomes a heaving Gold Rush outpost – a town with 400 men and just one woman, where no one knows how long the boom times can last.
Following last year’s unforgettable Fiddler on the Roof, the same creative team invites you to join the Everyman Company for a sensational foot-tapping hoedown. With songs including Wanderin’ Star and I Talk to the Trees, it’s a star-spangled celebration of love in a world that doesn’t know where it’s heading, and a party with you at its heart.
