Gunfighter Nation (named after Richard Slotkin’s book on the American West) is an El Lay based autonomous arts collective founded by John and Lex Steppling. Created to be a space for “un-sanctioned” artists to develop, while simultaneously providing audiences with a new voice in theatre and film, A LOST GUNFIGHTER XMAS will be the fourth Gunfighter Nation production since June.

Gunfighter Nation is open to anyone wishing to write, act, learn, and expand their critical vocabulary.

For more information, email jsteppling@gmail.com

Steppling and Lost Studio Artistic Director  Cinda Jackson  have collaborated before.  In addition to acting in several of his plays, Jackson, and Steppling, along with Mick Collins, founded Circus Minimus, an interdisciplinary production workshop for writers, actors, and directors in the early 90’s.  This workshop fostered the talents of many of L.A.’s finest contemporary artists.  With the return of Steppling and his writers’ consortium, Gunfighter Nation, the tradition of The Lost Studio as a teaching theatre continues to thrive.  Several of the original writers and actors from Circus Minimus  are members  of  Gunfighter Nation, as well as  many talented newcomers, including (ironically?) Steppling’s son, writer Lex Steppling and Jackson’s daughter, actress Eliza Lauren Dean…’and the seasons, they go round and round’.
