Bad Axe: A Play
In August of 1832, immediately following the Black Hawk Indian war, a woman's life is in jeopardy. During a battle at Bad Axe, Captain Conrad's wife inexplicably shot and scalped him. Was she forced by Indian captors to perform this heinous act-or was it murder? Lt. Romens is dispatched from Washington to the Illinois territory to conduct an inquest. While his inquiries proceed, revelations from Mrs. Conrad, another officer's wife and a wry-humored sergeant cast their own lights on the incident. Final judgment is in the hands of Black Hawk.
