Why should you be getting excited about Tony Hawks' new musical Midlife Cowboy? Well, the show's cast, including Hawks, have leapt onto Twitter to answer exactly that question. Take a look at what they have to say, then book your tickets!
The new show from actor, comedian and best-selling author Hawks runs at The Pleasance Theatre from 13 September to 6 October 2019, with a press night on 19 September.
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 as his country music-loving, puppet-making wife Jane. Duncan Wisbey, Georgina Field and James Thackeray complete the cast.
Midlife Cowboy runs at The Pleasance, Carpenters Mews, North Road, London, N7 9EF from 13 September to 6 October 2019, with performances Wednesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm and Sundays 6.30pm, matinees Saturdays and Sundays 2.30pm. Tickets are priced from £16. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
