COMEDY/WESTERN. Wild Bill Hickok knows he’s gotta cure his hiccups before the Doolin clan gits to town for a shootout. Knowin’ Wild Bill won’t be able to shoot straight with the hiccups, Calamity Jane, Doc Wall, Charlie Utter, and schoolmarm Betsy Begonia try to cure him by plugging his ears with corn silk and making him hop in a circle on one foot while shouting “Andy Jackson” five times. When that doesn’t work, they force Wild Bill to hold one of Charlie’s filthy socks to his mouth and inhale the fumes, which causes Bill to pass out. After hiding Wild Bill behind the bar, Doc Wall comes up with a scheme to solve things with the Doolins peaceful-like. Doc orders Betsy, Charlie, and Calamity Jane to sweet-talk the Doolins into courtin’ ‘em. But in this case, courtin’ turns out to be worse than a shootout as they soon discover these slobbery Doolins (aka the “Droolin’ Doolins”) definitely live up to their infamous nickname! For a full evening, combine this play with Geff Moyer’s one-act western “Zombie Gunslingers.” Both plays use the same set.
