Jesse and the Bandit Queen is an intriguing, many sided saga about the stormy relationship between Jesse James and Belle Starr

Interwoven into the play are tales of their outlaw contemporaries and of the people close to Jesse and Belle friends, foes, family and lovers. The two actors switch in and out of various roles to present a sweeping spectrum of the American West legend, myth and reality
