As Midlife Cowboy, the new musical created by Tony Hawks, plays its first performances at the Pleasance Theatre, listen to a couple of snippets from the show's songs before throwing on your best checked shirt and chaps to book your tickets!
The new show from actor, comedian and best-selling author Hawks runs in London until 6 October 2019.
Midlife Cowboy follows the fortunes of the members of the Swindon Country and Western Club as they bid to end many years of hurt by finally winning first prize at the prestigious Railway Museum Gala Evening. Along the way, they discover the true nature of heroism. But this is not just about country music. A marriage is in crisis, friendships are at risk, there is more than a sniff of infidelity in the air, and lives are changed when two new members to the club arrive and turn everything upside down.
It is a tale of heartache, love and friendship, laced with new country, blues, romantic and comedy songs.
Hawks leads the cast as Stuart, a man struggling with a midlife crisis, with Debra Stephenson plays his country music-loving, puppet-making wife Jane. Duncan Wisbey, Georgina Field and James Thackeray complete the cast.
