Agency Theater TRES BANDITOS

The Agency Theater Collective will produce their ninth world premiere play with Tres Bandidos​, written by Cody Lucas* and directed by Cordie Nelson* and Jack Schultz*, running at The Heartland Studio (​7016 N Glenwood Ave.)​ August 24 – September 15, 2018.

In ​Tres Bandidos​, ​Shep, David, and Luke get lost on the way to a planned bank robbery and hole up in a dingy Texas motel. As a storm roars outside, past demons and a ticking clock put the heist in jeopardy and push the outlaws toward the breaking point. Written with rapid-fire, cutting dialogue, this contemporary western places cowboy mentality in the crosshairs.

“It recontextualizes old west mythology and morality to see what those tropes mean in 2018 America,” says playwright Cody Lucas.

According to co-director Cordie Nelson, “The play puts everything in a pressure cooker and explores the effects of toxic masculinity on men in rural areas.”

Tres Bandidos will star Guy Wicke (Shep), Joe Lino (David), and Cody Lucas* (Luke). Understudies include John Miraglia, Joseph Mangels, and Erich Peltz.
