The Caldera Theatre Company and Elk River Arts & Lectures present Trout Fishing in Livingston: A Theatrical Homage to the Writings of Richard Brautigan as part of the Last Best Fest arts festival. Performances will be held Saturday, September 6 at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) and Sunday, September 7 at 2 p.m. (doors at 1:30) at Elk River Books/Wheatgrass Saloon, 120 N. Main Street in downtown Livingston. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance at Elk River Books or through our secure PayPal links below. Based on availability, tickets may also be purchased at the door.

Culled from the fiction and poetry of one of Livingston’s most-legendary writers, the play presents excerpts adapted into a satiric and wild journey through Brautigan’s world. The production was adapted and directed by Marc Beaudin, artistic director of the Caldera Theatre Company (CTC), and features performances by Gabriel Clark, Bret Kinslow and Sherry Pikul. Interspersed throughout the play’s nine scenes will be short readings by Brautigan’s close friend and biographer William Hjortsberg, author of Jubilee Hitchiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan.

Brautigan lived and wrote off and on in the Livingston area from the beginning of the 70s until his death in 1984. His writings, which are darkly comical, highly imaginative and often bordering on the surreal, found form in numerous novels, short stories and poems, the most famous being Trout Fishing in America.
