About this show

One Old Crow Productions presents a site-specific production of Cowboy Mouth, the play born out of the actual relationship between America's most celebrated dramatist, Sam Shepard and the godmother of Punk, Patti Smith. This play with original music composed in collaboration with the cast and director will take place in a grungy space above the bar Lucky Cheng's in the Lower East Side and will incorporate elements from the streets of New York. One Old Crow invites the audience into Cavale's apt, where she has been holed up with Slim. Slim, a musician, is kidnapped and held hostage by the young Cavale, who dreams of making him the next rock n' roll savior. What follows is a hypnotic meditation on art, desire, music, the state of the world, the place of dreams, and "two big dreamers who came together but were destined to come to a sad end." (Patti Smith, 1974).
