Synopsis


Midlife Cowboy is a warm, funny and entertaining new musical written by comedian and writer Tony Hawks and featuring a cast of talented actors and musicians.


It is tale of heartache, love, friendship, communication and country music and follows the fortunes of the members of the Swindon Country and Western Club as they seek 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 of the club arrive and turn everything upside down.
