Bed Time for Cowboy Frank!     

Bed Time for Cowboy Frank!

Arguably Frank Vickery’s most popular comedy, Tonto Evans, coming soon to Blackwood Miners’ Institute.

Ray ’Tonto’ Evans, ex-miner, country and western fanatic, given to dressing up as a Native American, feathered headdress and all, has come into money. He dreams of visiting the Wild West and eating beans by the campfire, but Mair, his long suffering wife of 30 years has other ideas.

They wrangle non-stop, while their son and his dozy wife prepare for a trip to Disneyland with their share of the windfall. But all their plans are put on hold by a murder enquiry conducted by the other son who happens to be the overly enthusiastic local plod. Where will it all end? And ’How’!?

‘I really enjoy everything about this play’, Frank comments, ‘I enjoyed writing it, rehearsing for it, and starring in it – and not just because I spend the whole time on stage in bed! It is definitely one of my funniest comedies.’

This is one of Frank’s most ingenious comedies, packed with laugh out loud one-liners and moments of pure slapstick. It’s the rootin’ tootin’ cowboy comedy of the year!

Escape for the evening into the hilarious world of Frank Vickery at Blackwood Miners’ Institute from Monday 5th October to Wednesday 7th October 7.30pm. Tickets cost £11 with £10 concessions and are available form the Box Office on 01495 227206 or book online at
