The Story Theatre

Late, a Cowboy Song

Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: Yes

Mary, always late and always married, meets a lady cowboy outside the city limits of Pittsburgh who teaches her how to ride a horse. Mary's husband, Crick, buys a painting with the last of their savings. Mary and Crick have a baby, but they can't decide on the baby's name, or the baby's gender.

The Theatre Company
The Story Theatre is a non-profit theatre that seeks to pose questions rather than supply answers. We produce theatre that focuses on: the poetry of text and form, the possibilities of the human imagination, and the gateways for emotional and intellectual investment. We are committed to and excited by diversity, inclusion, and collaboration among a myriad of artists.
