My Name’s Not Indian Joe, by Elizabeth A. Davis, is a blues-tinged musical about the unlikely bond formed between a homeless Native American man and a young aspiring Texas beauty queen. Confronting societal issues, and fraught with deep and sometimes uncertain emotional currents, the story takes the two characters on an odyssey from Waco, TX to the streets of New York City. In the process, it reveals deep truths about human nature.
