Rama Nicholas: Death Rides A Horse

Rama Nicholas
Apr 1st 2013 | Alex Roe
Have you ever wished you could walk the dusty promenades of the Ol West? If you could choose a past life, would it be the one of the dead-eyed desperado? Have you dreamt of toting spurred boots with bravado fuelled swagger all whilst an Ennio Morricone cover-band sets the tone to every bad-ass entrance you make? If this is your dream then Rama Nicholas is living it. Death Rides a Horse is a love letter to the golden age of Spaghetti Westerns. A singular storytelling experience that reins you in at a break neck speed and refuses to slow down. Sure as shooting Rama hits her marks as both performer and writer. Exercising quick-draw finesse with her character transformations/depictions and a profound understanding of Spaghetti Western cinema tropes. She has you cheering and gasping through all the character's falls and triumphs. Rama's performance is so in tune with show's delicious soundtrack it actually feels like your there. If you love thigh slapping musical numbers and appreciate the ecstasy of comedic gold, then saddle up and look no further. Rama Nicholas has got one hell of a show for you.
