The powerful story of Bass Reeves, a freed slave who protected the Wild West as the first African-American United States Deputy Marshal. Bass is said to have arrested more than 3,000  outlaws without sustaining a single gun wound. Many people said he inspired the lone ranger character.  

COWBOY is set in a saloon in the Indian territory 1888. A tornado is slowly approaching as Bass and his Indian partner find themselves stuck inside with a group of outlaws,  one in which he has a death warrant for. 

The play  recently sold out all performances in only two days at the 2019 National Black Theatre Festival this past August.
