Fame fades. The gold in the hills runs out.

For years, Francis Harmon traded off her reputation as a star actress in the prospering American cities. Now she and her companion May have washed up in a cabin on the Alaskan frontier, while May’s daughter prospects for gold.

The gold rush is almost exhausted. May makes a desperate gamble to reclaim Francis’s fame, and their fortune. When Francis is struck down by illness, they each must choose between facing the threat of their future and the lure of their dreams of the past.

In Skagway, a tale of the desires and loyalties of women in an American wilderness, is a compelling and lyrical first play by Irish writer Karen Ardiff.

Winner of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild Best New Play Award and the Stewart Parker/BBC radio drama award. Shortlisted for the Susan Smith Blackburn Award.
