Cowboy Mouth

  • Sterling Theatre (163 Sterling Road)
  • 8 p.m.

Sam Shepard and Patti Smith’s torrid love affair in the early ’70s resulted in Cowboy Mouth, a helter-skelter impression of a lost weekend (or longer) spent in a hotel room while hazy from drugs, alcohol, and rock and roll. The play was last seen in Toronto in the summer of 2013 as part of the Playwrights Project; now, there’s a short, week-long run at Sterling Theatre, featuring Oliver Pigott as rock star Slim, Danka Scepanovic as his manipulative muse Cavale, and Nick Stojanovic as the enigmatic Lobster Man. Each night of the run will feature a different local musical act.

For the third edition of The WOW Project, a series examining “Theatrical Representations of Queer Women in Canada, past, present, and future,” there’ll be a staged reading of Mel Hague’s Theatrical Essay: All the Stuff That Keeps People Apart. Lindsey Clark, who recently starred in Scheherazade at the Next Stage Festival, and Natasha Greenblatt, co-creator of Flush: The Series (and recently announced as a member of the National Arts Centre’s 2014-2015 company), play two women who “circle each other” in life and love. There’ll be a discussion of the work after the performance with the three creators, and the bar will, of course, be open for business.
