Harold Ryan is a ‘man’s man’ with a beautiful young wife (his third), a house full of hunting trophies, and a lust for...everything. Missing for seven years, having left on a quest for diamonds in the Amazon, he returns to find a wife beset by suitors, a son he barely knows, and a world in which his violent conquering spirit no longer belongs. If indeed it ever did.

Director and playwright Liz Neerland dips into historical records, photographs, and family archives to bring a vivid portrait of the struggles of a diverse and lively Minneapolis immigrant world to the stage. Our story begins in 1869, and a tiny village grows and thrives literally at the river’s edge, as the years pass and the burgeoning city of Minneapolis tries to crowd it out. Births, marriages, deaths, floods, fights, fires, all play out in a collection of tiny cottages right on the west bank. Nothing now remains but a park bearing the name: Bohemian Flats.

A poet of science, his ideas belonged in the 21st century: neon light, alternating current, wireless power transmission, radio remote control. He designed vacuum tubes, took some of the earliest X-ray photographs, produced artificial lightning. He also dug ditches, feared germs, was fixated on the number three. Friends included Mark Twain, Sarah Bernhardt, and a pigeon whose name is lost to history. Enemies included Thomas Edison, overweight people and pearls. A new workshop based on the life of the eccentric genius.
