HOSSBACK – AN OFF THE WALL COMEDY
This satirical off the wall comedy rips off typical cowboys from the old west, or at least modern society’s idea of what cowboys actually were like by taking an over the top view of them. From the way they loved their hosses as if they were real women, to their predilection for hanging ‘criminals’ of an description to their manner of speaking – all those cowboy traits we are so fond of are chewed up and spat out again.
“HOSSBACK” was originally produced Off-off Broadway at the expanded Arts Theatre in 1991.
