Midlife Cowboy is a THP Ltd production.
Written by Tony Hawks
Starring Debra Stephenson, Duncan Wisbey, Tony Hawks, Georgina Field and James Thackeray
Midlife Cowboy is a warm, funny and entertaining new musical written by comedian and best-selling author Tony Hawks. Featuring a cast of talented actors and musicians it is tale of heartache, love, and friendship with some great new country, blues, romantic and comedy songs. The show follows the fortunes of the members of the Swindon Country and Western Club as they discover the true nature of heroism in their bid to end many years of hurt by finally winning first prize at the prestigious local Railway Museum Gala Evening !
The stakes are high 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.
