Quirky, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you go home when at the interval. The first half is funny, thought-provoking and clever - an entertaining exploration of gender fluidity.

Don't see it if you want the second half to be as strong as the first half. Some of it is down right farcical, a shame that such a strong start is let down

Ambitious, Relevant, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You need some light-hearted entertainment that will emphasise the importance of love and acceptance.

Don't see it if You are homophobic or narrow-minded. This show (rightfully may I add) celebrates diversity and people being brave enough to be themselves.

Hilarious, Refreshing, Quirky, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if You want the rompiest of romps. Queer characters to the fore in a western setting.

Don't see it if Gunshots may be triggering.

" 'Cowbois' isn’t a bad play per se. It’s a fun and gimmicky queer-affirming semi-comedy"

"This baggily playful, queer subversion of Wild West tropes is a delight"
