Long gone Lonesome CowgirLs a play by Philip Dean. Originally published in 1995 and receiving a Matilda Award in the same year. Thrown together by chance, two women strike up an unexpected friendship. Vicki and rae are united by their devotion to country music, American cowboy heroes and their abandonment by errant husbands. Set in a Queensland country town in the mid-1960s. Vicki is a housewife and conforming Catholic, forever awaiting the arrival of her itinerant husband. Into her small-town existence comes rae, a brash, hard-living barmaid, abandoned on the roadside by her rodeo-riding husband of 5 weeks. Together they find their way through the confusions of the not-so-swinging sixties towards independence, carried on dreams and the songs of Hank Williams, Patsy Kline and Johnny Cash.
