Queer Cowboys

A jukebox musical, where forgotten cowboys ride again.

Queer Cowboys is a semi-autobiographical play about Freddie, a resident of Oklahoma new to their transgender identity, who combats loneliness by embarking on a mission to discover their “transcestors”. In the process, they excavate two true forgotten stories of the Old West: Harry Allen and Little Joe Monahan, two transgender cowboys.

With beloved country jams performed by a live band, the true stories of these two transgender cowboys are brought back to life. 

Queer Cowboys is coming to the King’s Head for the first time, following a successful world premiere at Wilton’s Music Hall in 2022. It is written and performed by West End star and wannabe cowboy, Freddie Love (Just For One Day, But I’m a Cheerleader), who is a long-time collaborator of the King’s Head. Freddie Love uses a mix of gig-theatre, verbatim theatre, and cabaret to do these cowboys justice. "Operatic and smouldering" - The Stage

"Freddie Love is fantastic" - Broadway World

"Totally at home on stage, a joy to watch and a real star in the making." - British Theatre

"Freddie Love's stage presence is truly a wonder to behold, and their exceptional voice sounds rich and melodious..." - Musical Theatre Review

"Love is a charming performer, endlessly comfortable on stage." - Riot in the Cheap Seats

Musical Director Olivia Zacharia unites the talents of Freddie Love (vocals), Migdalia Van Der Hoven (Drums), Ross McTeague (guitar & keys) to bring you all your favourite country songs - with a gay twist. Or were they always gay?

Cult-gay-basement-theatre-legend, Charles Quittner directs this poignant and campy show with Elliot Aitken as Assistant Director. George Jones works set design and props, to transform the space into a campfire evening of storytelling.
