Here is a synopsis, character descriptions, and a pdf of the script.

This play is a love story for all the cowboys of heart and mind who ride outside the city limits of convention. Mary, always late, and always feeling there’s something missing from her comfortable married life, meets Red, a slow-talking, guitar-playing cowboy who teaches her to ride a horse and listen to her heart. Crick, Mary’s husband, buys a painting with the last of their savings. The couple has a baby, but can’t seem to decide on the baby’s name or the baby’s gender. As the years go by faster and faster, Mary wonders if she’ll ever find someone who experiences life at the same pace as her… 

CRICK: Charming, fragile, and child-like.

MARY: Keeps her journal locked.

RED: She’s no cowgirl, she’s a cowboy.
 

This play explores themes of Compulsory Heterosexuality, Masculinity, Gender Nonconformity, Love, and Parenting/Family.

In the spirit of a show dealing with issues of marginalization and identity, Queer, Trans, and BIPOC actors are encouraged to audition!
