A rollicking queer Western like nothing you’ve seen before. Grab your stetson and spurs and join us for the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Cowbois by Charlie Josephine. ‘A joyous queer cowboy romp’ (West End Best Friend) co-directed by Charlie Josephine and Sean Holmes.

Cowbois has been nominated for two WhatOnStage Awards for Best New Play and Best Costume Design.

In a sleepy town in the Wild West, the women drift through their days like tumbleweed. Their husbands, swept up in the goldrush, have been missing for almost a year and show no sign of returning. In fact, the town is almost cut off from outsiders entirely, with only one drunken sheriff for protection.

“A whole new frontier” – Guardian

That is until handsome bandit Jack Cannon swaggers up to the town’s saloon, looking for a place to hide from the bounty hunters on his tail. Armed with a wink, and with a gun by their side for good measure, Jack’s explosive arrival inspires a gender revolution, and starts a fire under the petticoat of every one of the town’s repressed inhabitants.

“Swagger, humor, and plenty of good old-fashioned gun-slinging action” – WhatsOnStage
