"The Last Trial of Alferd Packer"
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.
