In Skagway

By Karen Ardiff

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A compelling and lyrical tale of the desires and loyalties of women in an American wilderness. 

For years, Francis Harmon has traded off her reputation as a star actress in the prospering American cities. Now, at the end of the nineteenth century, she and her companion May have washed up in a cabin on the Alaskan frontier, while May's daughter prospects for gold.

But the gold rush is almost exhausted, and when Francis is struck down by illness, they all must choose between facing up to a bleak future or giving in to the lure of the past.

Winner of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild Best New Play Award, Karen Ardiff's play In Skagway received its UK premiere at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2014.

Fame fades. The gold in the hills runs out.
