Play Notes



With grit, and unbridled ambition, The Donnelly brothers strike out to find their fortunes. The
enterprising William Donnelly starts a stagecoach line running North from London, and together
the boys drive horses, freight, and passengers to great success, all while drawing the
resentment and rage of their rivals…and so begin the fabled Stage Coach Wars.
When barns burn, horses go missing (or worse), when the constabulary can‘t keep the boys in
line, and the courtrooms fail to contain them, justice gets meted out ankle deep in the muddy
roads, or above the din in the beer-drenched taverns. That is until some of those rival start
forming a secret society of their own in the Cedar Swamp.
High romance, barroom brawls, and an irrepressible instinct to raise hell on the Roman Line.
