Play information:

B. Traven’s timeless masterpiece comes to life in this startling new stage adaptation. Set in Mexico in the 1930’s, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is a compelling and unforgettable story of how the blind pursuit of material wealth can turn even the best of men into monsters. Fans of John Huston’s Academy Award winning classic film will relish the way in which this play captures Traven’s scorn for regimentation and earthly goods, and his passion for individual liberty and the primitive past. Full of high adventure, treachery, and unbridled greed, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre bristles with all the primal energy of men engaged in a desperate search for an illusive treasure that proves secondary to the thrill of the hunt.
