Jane Martin

Published by Samuel French Inc

3 Male 3 Female

Big 8, the feisty rodeo competitor from Talking With, is back. It's nineteen years later; she is still a bitter critter, now facing foreclosure on the Wyoming ranch where she rehabilitates injured rodeo cowboys

The arrival of a shocking woman named Shedevil and a one eyed Ukranian biker named Black Dog ushers in outrageous violence and horror in this shoot "em up, knock "em up, cut "em up comic romp that roasts the cowboy mentality of western writers like Zane Grey

Showcasing the antic side of this prolific, award winning playwright, this bodacious and macabre cross over comedy mixes horror and hilarity as it pits the code of the West against contemporary darkness

"The funniest and the wildest.... Adds still another dimension to this author's body of work.... The laugh lines are non stop" ~ CenterStage

"Spurred the Humana Festival into full gallop.... Borrows a heap of corniness from the B movie Westerns and mixes a few pieces and we really mean bits and pieces of horror in this hilarious, rip snortin' and effusively bloody two act....This is definitely good" ~ Scene

"High style farce, exuberantly played.... It can be relished as an old fashioned "laugh riot' ... or as a devastating skewering of our pop culture inanities" ~
