Written, Directed and Performed by Randy Carr
“TUCK©,” premieres Friday, August 10, at 7:00 pm, at the Seedboat Performing Arts Center. “TUCK,” continues Saturday August 11 at 7:00 pm and Sunday with a 2:00 pm matinee. “TUCK,” was Grant County Deputy Sheriff Dan Tucker, southwest New Mexico Territory’s most effective lawman of the late 1880s.
The play opens in 1912 Silver City at the home of Wayne Whitehill, son of the late Harvey Whitehill, former sheriff of Silver City. Carr wrote the play based on historical accounts of the day. The following accounts were generated by folks who attended an abbreviated version of the play Carr performed last January when New Mexico became 100 years old.
These recent performances are being presented as part of the New Mexico centennial celebration.
“The script deftly mixes history and personality, with just enough bits of both humor and gunplay…an ideal Old West lawman, looking back on his “dangerous” career on the occasion of New Mexico’s statehood — think Hal Holbrook’s Mark Twain, if he were packing heat.” -David Fryxell, Editor, Publisher and Author, the Desert Exposure. “Tuck enthralls us with true and often outrageous stories of hardship, violence, tom foolery, adventure and wit in old Territorial New Mexico.” -Starr Belsky, Co-owner of Alotto Gelatto and Co-Chair, Coordinating Council Silver City Arts & Cultural District. “Deputy Day Tucker’s rollicking reenactment is an evening of rip roaring fun and excitement. ..Carr’s writing and performing depicts .. old Silver City, complete with gun fights, poker games and scenes of daily life – all without the dust and saddle sores.” -Nancy Cliff.
