Dark Noon (Off-Broadway, St. Ann's Warehouse, 2024) | Playbill

Dark Noon



In Dark Noon, a cast of South African actors and members of the audience re-enact the story of the American wild, wild west through the lens of Hollywood Westerns. This incendiary spectacle turns American history on its head — from the land rush to the gold rush, to gunfights and gunslingers, the territorial conflicts between the European settlers and the indigenous natives are all there. It’s an absurd and vicious game – playful until it isn’t.

Directed by Tue Biering and Nhlanhla Mahlangu
