Following a critically acclaimed Melbourne season, Motherboard Productions and Griffin Independent presents the Sydney premiere of Morgan Rose’s Virgins & Cowboys – a dangerous and unapologetic bon voyage to the patriarchy at the Stables Theatre until 16 December 2017.
A sitcom-reject, set in cyberspace, Virgins & Cowboys is a play about a 20-something dude stuck in a dead-end job who meets two women online, both of whom are virgins. As he sets out on a bizarre self-assigned mission to ‘be the one who…’, the internet, the past, the future, and the stage smash together and everything crumbles around him.
This twisted and timely premise is used to examine a demographic of people spat out of the other end of the information age – those in a futile and relentless pursuit of happiness. Combining Morgan Rose’s darkly comedic social commentary with Dave Sleswick’s bold and colourful direction, Virgins & Cowboys brings together a talented ensemble cast in this non-hero’s journey.
Director: Dave Sleswick Featuring: Katrina Cornwell, James Deeth, Penelope Harpham, Kieran Law, George Lingard Set & Costume Designer: Yvette Turnbull Lighting Designer: Lisa Mibus Sound Designer: Liam Barton Producer: Natasha Phillips Stage Manager: Kate Brennen
