The drama concerns the 1934 disappearance of 20-year-old artist and naturalist Everett Ruess, who went missing in the canyon country near Escalante, UT. "Nearly a century later Ruess is a near-mythic figure," according to Plan-B. "The End of the Horizon is a searing drama about the Ruess family and the power of the unknown."
Jon Krakauer devotes a section of his book, "Into the Wild," to Ruess.
The cast features Jason Bowcutt, David Fetzer, Jesse Harward, Stephanie Howell, Garry Peter Morris and playwright Debora Threedy herself. Kay Shean directs. The creative team includes Randy Rasmussen (sets), Cheryl Ann Cluff (sound), Ricklen Nobis (original music), Nancy Hills (costumes), Cory Thorell (lighting and props) and Jennifer Freed (stage manager).
Jerry Rapier is producing director of Plan-B Theatre Company.
