About: Midlife Cowboy

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.

Debra Stephenson stars as Jane, a country music loving puppet-maker who is trying to save her failing marriage and revive their home based Cowboy Club. Debra is one of Britain’s most talented actors and impressionists and her credits include Coronation Street, Bad Girls, Dead Ringers, The Impressions Show and most recently The Imitation Game. Tony Hawks plays her midlife crisis suffering husband Stuart. A regular on many of BBC Radio 4's best loved comedy programmes including Just a Minute, I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue and The Unbelievable Truth. Tony is also one of the UK's most successful authors having written many best selling books including Round Ireland with a Fridge. Their friends include Duncan Wisbey (Graham) an actor, musician and impressionist best known for Alistair McGowan’s Big Impression, Dead Ringers, Four in a Bed, The Hive and Ultimate Brain, Georgina Field (Penny) whose multiple skills have led her to perform in numerous musicals around the UK including Godspell, Salad Days, The Phantom of the Opera and Guys & Dolls and James Thackeray (Dan), an outstanding young actor who has been seen in Doctor Who and is soon to appear in Trainspotting: Live at the Edinburgh Fringe
