SARAH RUHL’S ‘LATE : A COWBOY SONG’ @ ERSKINEVILLE TOWN HALL

Sarah Ruhl, one of America's finest contemporary playwrights.
Sarah Ruhl, one of America’s finest contemporary playwrights.

“This play is for all the lady cowboys of heart and mind who ride outside the city limits of convention.” – Sarah Ruhl.

This beautiful play, in its Australian debut, asks big questions about how gender defines who and how we love. Sarah Ruhl’s LATE : a COWBOY SONG follows Mary, an endless worrier, as she reconnects with her lady cowboy friend, Red, whose forehead has no worry lines at all. Crick, Mary’s husband, buys a painting with all her savings. Red teaches Mary how to ride a horse and to enjoy the silence. Crick and Mary, who have been in love since the second grade, can’t decide on their newborn’s name or gender. The three sing songs, celebrate holidays, and and try to navigate their way through the blurred lines of love and relationships. A story of one woman’s education and her search to find true love outside the box…

It looks like it will be quite a journey, especially considering that Sarah Ruhl sure knows how to give an audience a stimulating, entertaining night in the theatre. I have great memories of two of her plays that the Sydney Theatre Company have produced- In  The Next Room of the Vibrator Play  and Orlando (an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s classic novel).

27th September @ 8:30pm
