Studio Theatre Perth
 “The Lone Rider:
a Large Number of Ways to Die in the West

by Mat Kelly

in the Studio Theatre

Production Dates:  July 28 to August 7, 2022 


Murder mysteries come in many flavours, but this upcoming Studio Theatre production is
definitely unique and unmatched. Prepare for a rarely seen genre in the world of theatre: a whodunit
western-comedy. From the sharpshooting cattle baroness to the crooked banker, to the saloon girl who knows too much for her own good, everyone has something to hide.

Mat Kelly’s plot twists and turns through several complications, leaving a trail of clues leading to the
murderer’s identity. So kick up your spurs and enjoy the newest, and possibly the most playful and
clever Studio Theatre production.
