Default Magdalena: Once Upon A Time in Lost Wife Creek...

Once Upon A Time in Lost Wife Creek...
Dark Moon Play is Perfect for the Season

We learned some of the secrets and lore of the mythical New Mexico frontier village named Lost Wife Creek.

Magdalena, NM: It was a dark and stormy night in the sleepy mountain village of Magdalena (Okay, so it wasn't so stormy but it sure was dark!) when my Wife/Owner and I arrived at the WPA theater to enjoy the Saturday night performance of 'Dark Moon' at London Frontier Theater Company's home theater. It was a trip well worth making. We had a delightful evening as we visited with old friends and made some new ones while enjoying the latest 'ink's-not-dry-yet' theatrical farce written and produced by Donna Todd, founder of the company. For the first time we learned some of the secrets and lore of the mythical New Mexico frontier village named Lost Wife Creek. The cast put on a fine performance of this amusing comedic-drama with a few surprises thrown in to keep the audience guessing.

The play is just spooky and surreal enough to fit perfectly in this season of Halloween and the Day of the Dead.

The play is just spooky and surreal enough to fit perfectly in this season of Halloween and the Day of the Dead. This latest installment in playwright Todd's Lost Wife Creek serial theater series even incorporates an eerie time-lost 'dejavuesque' sequence in which cast members find themselves lost late at night on a strange and mysterious road somewhere near Lost Wife Creek that none of them remembers or has driven before. Their journey down that road had the audience on the edge of our seats wondering how the actors would escape from a place where things they saw and the conversation they were having as they travelled seemed to repeat themselves.

This very enjoyable new play takes its audience on a fun and intriguing romp through the land of 'what's possible'.

We won't give the story or its outcome away. But we can say this very enjoyable new play takes its audience on a fun and intriguing romp through the land of "what's possible" in this season when La Llorona and Her ghostly cousins freely roam the rivers, streams, streets, highways and byways of New Mexico and the dead sometimes drop by to visit neighbors and relatives just for fun.


Our thanks to Donna Todd and her cast of seven for putting on a great show! It was the most fun I'd had since my birthday last year when my Owner and I also had the pleasure of attending another LFTC original performance except that Halloween night I was wearing a dress!


Our Rating: Five Stars! *****

Our Recommendation: Don't Miss It!

Final Performances: Saturday and Sunday Nov 3 - 4

Conclusion: Be there! You'll be glad you went!
