The Wild West just got wilder. Babes with Blades Theatre Company explores the daring emotional and physical range of women with the debut of Patchwork Drifter at Chicago’s City Lit Theatre. California-bound Emmy Fox takes refuge with a humble shopkeeper and her two daughters. However, miles of desert can’t separate Emmy from the ghosts of her past. With secrets and danger lurking behind every corner, Emmy must battle a past as hazardous as the Wyoming frontier. With strong female characters and carefully choreographed, cutthroat stage combat, Patchwork Drifter is a plucky, action-packed Western-inspired drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
