Broken Statue | OK Star Trek (27:45)

THE BROKEN STATUE, An Oklahoma Production
The world premiere of a pure Oklahoma production shines a spotlight on one of this state’s most mysterious women, Lydie Marland. The second wife of Oklahoma oilman and Governor E.W. Marland first captured the curiosity of her hometown, Ponca City and of the state when she married Marland, the man who had been her step-father. Then she captured the attention of a nation when she disappeared for 22 years. Hers is a story of wealth and loss, of love and despair, of hope and of grace. It is a story that is finally being told 14 years after Lydie Marland’s death. Join Gallery as we meet the author of a book about Lydie’s life, “The Broken Statue” and see the characters in that book brought to life by Oklahoma actors on the state’s premier community stage, the Jewel Box Theatre. Gallery in November is a story within a story to showcase a years long effort to unearth the life of an Oklahoma woman who wanted nothing more than to disappear. It is the story of “The Broken Statue”.

He’s explored strange new worlds, sought out new life and new civilizations and has boldly gone where few Oklahomans have gone before and in November, you’ll get to meet him on Gallery. In the late 60’s Oklahoman Russell Bates met Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry at a Writer’s Guild Conference. That meeting would chart the course of his writing life. Bates was asked to write for the new Star Trek animated series where he won a National Emmy Award and a Peabody Award for Best Writing in an Animated Series. The episode he wrote titled, “Sharper Than a Serpent’s Tooth” that garnered such accolades encompassed his heritage, placing the first Native American crew member on the Star Ship Enterprise. Join Gallery in November for our Oklahoma Trek to Anadarko to meet Russell Bates, an esteemed writer who is still moving at Mach speed.
