Action Hero - A Western
Friday 2 November, doors 7.30pm
…We want to make a Western. We have a cowboy hat and some ketchup. We want the scene where our hero walks into the bar and everyone stops talking. We want the scene where the whore begs to be loved. We want to cheat at cards. We want blood and guns. Everyone will have a moustache. All the bad guys laugh. Dust blows across a deserted street.
Together with their audience, Action Hero reclaim this chaotic half-arsed Western as their own and celebrate the failure of generic heroes, cheap whores and the all American idol.
“Resolutely off-kilter but entirely accessible….. brilliant….immensely clever”
“Sharp, witty and poignant…a truly epic piece of theatre...a beautiful pipedream of a show – one that places the audience at its heart.”
