A PERFORMING arts company from Brighton will be bringing a taste of the Wild West to Kidderminster.

Livestock will play Billy The Kid: His Life In Music at The Boars Head, Worcester Street, on Sunday, September 14 at 4pm.

The production, which features two ageing cowboys attempting to achieve notoriety by fabricating an association with the legendary outlaw, has been described as “an entertaining fusion of music, theatre and comedy”.

Rex Horan, who was an award winner at Jazz FM’s artist of the year competition in 2013, wrote and stars in the play alongside Chris Johnston.

The show includes re-enactments of moments from cowboy history and songs such as The Ballad of Viagra and Caught In The Fire.

There is also humour as the two cowboys, Chevron Malaise and Acapulco Beans, fail to convince with their tales of riding the Western trail with Billy The Kid, participating in gunfights and surviving, none of which are true.

Brighton Fringe 2013 hosted the first performance of the play while the Etcetera Theatre in Camden was the venue for a week-long run.

The play, which is free to attend but donations are welcome, is touring the West Midlands in mid September.
