A Reading of BLUE COWBOY

presented by
Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency

Written and performed by David Cale • Directed by Les Waters

A gay writer from New York travels to Ketchum, Idaho to work on a film script set in Sun Valley. His plans and life take a wildly unanticipated turn after he has a chance encounter with an elusive ranch hand at the town’s annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival. Blue Cowboy, is the frank and sexually explicit story of two men from very different worlds. One who’s very open about his life, and the other whose life remains a self-imposed mystery to everyone around him, but who both share a profound need to intimately connect to another human being. 

The inaugural recipient of the Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency, Obie Award-winning performer and playwright David Cale wrote Blue Cowboy while in residence at the Ernest & Mary Hemingway House, which is managed by The Community Library. This workshop reading is directed by Tony-nominee Les Waters, and is presented in association with The Argyros and The Community Library.

Content transparency: This reading includes frank descriptions of sexual acts.
