Before you attend the show, I felt that you should get to know our mean, crooked, lawless, immoral, reprehensible (you get the picture) villain of the show, Hank Trent (played by Larry Brosius).
Now, you'll have to form your own opinion of course. This writer doesn't want to bias you against him or anything...maybe you like people who cheat, blackmail, and downright lie.
But the townspeople of Whiskey Flats definitely don't. And, someone's dislike is so strong that they murder him during his lunch at Mac Donald's. But as the murderer says when he OR she (remember no hints here) confesses, anyone of the Whiskey Flats members could have done it to save their livelihood.
This cruel character is ready to send a hard-working, dedicated stagecoach driver to the poor farm. He's planning to put the sweet and 'motherly' saloon owner out of business. Let's not even mention the fact that he's trying to make a gentleman gambler actually work to pay off debts. The nerve.
He's blackmailing the school teacher for her past while trying to take over the town of Whiskey Flats in general. He's stealing cattle to become the biggest rancher and threatens to take the Sheriff's position. And to top it off, he stood the saloon girl up at the alter on their wedding day.
Now, just as a side note to you gentlemen attending the show. Watch out for that saloon girl, Cherry, as she's always looking for her next catch. That incorrigible flirt tries to steal a kiss from any man who comes to Whiskey Flats. Single guys be on the lookout.
But back to our real villain. Is it any wonder that no one likes Hank Trent? Why, I wouldn't be surprised if people booed him from their seats by the end of the show. He's just smarmy enough to enjoy it too.
Now, violence doesn't solve anything so it's important for us to remember law and order. Remember, that's where you come in. Get your tickets now and help us solve this crime since even the Sheriff is suspected of committing this murder.
