Cowboys With Questions – Parley @ 12th Avenue Arts (Seattle – Capitol Hill)

August 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Written & directed by Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth
a modern take on a Greek tragedy

In a tunnel beneath the Soledad Mission in California, a group of people are drinking wine with a special ingredient. They’re all in thrall to George, a charismatic leader with an uncanny ability to skirt death. Then a cowboy interrupts their secret ritual with questions – about cattle, real estate, orgies, even the Talking Heads. Inspired equally by The Bacchae, cults, and the Doomsday Clock, Cowboys With Questions examines the pleasures and costs of surviving in uncertain times.

Tickets ($7-$23, sliding scale available to all) here. Comps are also available if needed.

Bacchic rites* begin at 7 pm
Workshop production begins at 8 pm

*The Bacchic Rites are an immersive dramaturgical experience culminating in a Movement performance by the cast inspired by ritual elements explored in the play.
