Follow the seedy exploits of Slim and Cavale, two tumultuous artists based on Sam Shepard and Patti Smith, who wrote the play during their relationship. Cavale (inspired by Smith) and Slim (modeled on Shepard) live in New York City during the '60s and '70s, and together with their pet lobster, the pair live, fight and create enough for 10,000 lifetimes before their partnership disintegrates. Smith and Shepard wrote Cowboy Mouth in two nights by passing a typewriter back and forth between them, writing deranged, emotionally fueled dialogue. Learn More

My wife and I had the misfortune to be subjected to half of this "play festival" (we fled at intermission), It was a shockingly poor theater experience, involving an infantile, unintelligent, unfunny, completely non-insightful, totally unsubtle, extremely poorly written set of plays that would have done discredit to a high school that might have shown them, much less a Manhattan theater. One play, "Right to Vote," was particularly offensive, displaying two white conservatives making repeated callous and blatantly racist comments to a young black women and denying her the right to vote. The two persons were turned into idiotic caricatures, and the overall situation was portrayed in a completely unrealistic manner that served only to satisfy the playwright's extreme biases. Shame on the 13th Street Repertory Company for showing this play.
