Cowboy Mouth

directed by Leah Benavides

Geoffrey Pomeroy as Slim and Diana Beshara as Cavale 

One Old Crow's Inaugural production of COWBOY MOUTH
by Patti Smith and Sam Shepard
directed by Leah Benavides

A SITE SPECIFIC PLAY WITH MUSIC
IN THE HEART OF THE LOWER EAST SIDE

Cowboy Mouth, a labor born out of the actual relationship between Sam Shepard and Patti Smith, is an explosion of poetry, music, action, and inaction. Slim, a musician, is kidnapped and held hostage by the young Cavale, who dreams of making him the next rock'n'roll savior. What follows is a hypnotic meditation on art, desire, music, the state of the world, the place of dreams, and "two people that were destined -- two big dreamers who came together but were destined to come to a sad end." (Patti Smith, 1974).

This play with original music composed in collaboration with the cast and director will take place in a grungy space above the bar Lucky Cheng's in the Lower East Side and will incorporate elements from the streets of New York. One Old Crow invites the audience into Cavale's apt, where she has been holed up with Slim.

The production, presented by One Old Crow Productions will play a three-week engagement in an apartment above Lucky Cheng's (24 1st Avenue at 2nd Street) June 7-22; June 7 & 8, 11-14, & 20 & 21 at 8pm, Friday, June 15 & 22 at 8pm and 10pm, and Sunday, June 10 & 17 at 5pm. Tickets ($15) may be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com or by calling 1-800-838-3006 and include a complimentary glass of wine.
