Somewhere in America, sometime... A misunderstood teen girl is falling for a mysterious cowboy with a dark past. Meanwhile, in London...

And they're absolutely never going to admit that they fancy each other.

What a fabulous, sweet, funny and clever show. Fab acting from both women. Absolutely worth a watch.

A lovely, effervescent little play, featuring two excellent actors shifting smoothly between several different characters and a funny, charming script which ends on a wonderfully uplifting, sweet note.

What a lovely lovely show - a heartwarming script that slips between two contrasting stories. The two actors did an excellent job of creating distinctive characterisations for their different roles, both the 'real world' teenagers and the colourful inhabitants of the cowboy fiction. Plus a lot of it was just very very funny :)

Outrageous, hilarious, and wonderfully wholesome, this queer rom-com is exactly what the title insists and more.

EdFringe Review (5/5 stars) 34 days ago

highly camp, uproariously funny, yet genuinely moving insight into the experience of being seventeen and feeling that your whole life is simultaneously ahead of and behind you.

This is a show full of heart and genuine laugh-out-loud comedy. It leaves you with a warm fuzzy feeling - a must-see not only for fans of cowboys or of lesbians but for any theatregoers wanting a proper laugh.

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 34 days ago

Queer coming of age is so often glibly touched on, or else portrayed solely as a struggle, that seeing it explored and performed with such vividness and precision was a revelation. 17-year-old me didn’t realise she was missing out on a romcom like this
