"The Last Trial of Alferd Packer"

Summer 2018 image.jpg

Talented community members of the Ouray County Players came together to present "The Last Trial of Alfred Packer"on July 27 and 28, 2018 as a fundraiser for the Ouray County Historical Society. The event was held at the Ouray Elks Lodge. A Mystery Meat barbeque was also offered as an additional purchase.

     The play is based on the historical information recorded about the trial of Alferd Packer for murder and cannibalism after a most unfortunate prospecting expedition in 1874. 

     The play was written by Professor Michael Brooks and Professor Paul Edwards of Western State Colorado in 1989.
