A universal story about the search to find authenticity and true love outside the box by Tony Award nominee and Pulitzer prize winning playwright Sarah Ruhl.

Mary, always late and always searching, is caught in a battle between societal expectations and experiencing true freedom. A show for all the cowboys of heart and mind who ride outside the city limits of convention.

“Touching upon topics ranging from unemployment to physical and emotional gender identity, domestic violence, secrecy, true love, household chores, the freedom and power of horses, celebrations of holidays and the connection to real feelings that funny coincidences evoke…it is noteworthy that words like “lesbian, “bisexual,” “intersex,” “sex roles” and such are never spoken…But, in the absence of such labels, Ruhl’s [characters] become both specific and universal.” Paul Thompson,
