Written by Sam Shepard and Patti Smith over the course of a wild and tumultuous night, the 1971 play Cowboy Mouth tells the tale of Slim, a cat who looks like a coyote, who is kidnapped by Cavale, a chick who looks like a crow. She dreams of making him a "rock-and-roll Jesus with a cowboy mouth." In the first production, Cavale was played by Patti Smith, Shepard's then-lover, while Shepard himself took the role of Slim.
Toronto's renowned singer/songwriter Jason Collett (Arts & Crafts) & member of indie rock sensation Broken Social Scene, is set to make his theatrical debut playing the role of Slim opposite actor Jessica Huras, who will tackle Smith's Cavale. New comer Mikey Lipka plays Lobster Man and director Esther Jun is back at the helm, along with designer Akiva Romer-Segal, in Heart in Hand's follow up production to their 2010 remount of Claudia Dey's Trout Stanley.
Heart in Hand was inspired to produce Cowboy Mouth after reading Patti's bestselling memoir, Just Kids.
