Overview

You wouldn’t look twice at Peggy Jo. She's a good daughter, always tips, plays by the rules - but when she dons a fake beard, sunglasses, and ten-gallon hat, she becomes “Cowboy Bob”- the slickest bank robber Texas has ever known. And she may just be the life-affirming inspiration one waitress in a Dallas Chili’s badly needs to buck routine and take control of her own life. Equal parts Riot Grrrl rage and Texas twang, this world premiere musical loosely based on actual events - and co-authored by Galveston’s own Molly Beach Murphy - invites audiences to join the heist, take life by the reins, and let it ride.
