“ The Cowboy of the Western World “ is a musical adaptation of J.M. Synge’s Irish classic “ The Playboy of the Western World”.  Our story was inspired by the glorious Irish original and transported to a desolate saloon somewhere in the borderland frontier of Montana and Alberta circa 1890. It is deeply rooted in the past and embraces our own immigrant history of struggle, survival and a few broken dreams. This concert style kitchen party presentation at Hugh’s Room is one more step in the development of what promises to be a truly unique musical.
