Mr. and Mrs. Wyatt Earp The Sunset Years

"Mr and Mrs. Wyatt Earp: The Sunset Years" This is the true story of love, adventure, secrets and betrayals as told by the elderly Wyatt and Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp. The two person play flows in and out of time and place as Wyatt speaks to biographer Stuart N. Lake from their Los Angeles, California Apartment in 1928 and Mrs Earp talks to a Feral cat at the Earp's Vidal, California cottage in 1938 on Rosh Hashanah.

The show take place in Josie's memory nine years after Wyatt's death as an elderly Wyatt speaks reluctantly of his time in Tombstone and his life afterwards. The Sunset Years follows the sometimes turbulent times of the couple's 47-year life together as they traveled and prospected throughout the west and Alaska.

After Wyatt's death, Sadie (Josie) a charming, controlling woman with a compulsion for gambling fights to control and create the legend of her late husband and conceal her past and her part in the happenings in Tombstone, Arizona Territory.

Wyatt and Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp are buried together in her family plot in the Hills of Eternity Jewish Cemetery in Colma, California. There headstone reads "... That nothing's so sacred as honor, and nothing so loyal as love!

Terry Earp - Notes From The Playwright!
This play is historically accurate as possible. Although no marriage certificate has been truly identified for the Earp's, Josie always claimed they were married. I feel if a couple is together for almost 48 years I say they are married regardless of any ceremony or Certificate.
