Billy The Kid – His Life In Music

August 5th, 2014

The next show at AE Harris is brought to you by Livestock

Billy the Kid is the first modern anti-hero.
Two men claim to remember him; Chevron Malaise & Acapulco Beans.
It don’t come back easy.

Billy the Kid – His Life in Music is an unlikely evening of reminiscence presented by two ageing cowboys. It has to be said; the stories don’t quite piece together. But with original songs, electronic soundscapes, re-enactments of famous moments in cowboy history and a wider examination of the quest for notoriety by association, the show makes makes for an original fusion of theatre and late night, off-beat humour.

Featuring musician Rex Horan (Neil Cowley Trio, Jazz Artist of the Year 2013) and writer/performer Chris Johnston (RSC and Co-Director of Livestock) Rex and Chris have been working together over several years exploring ways to fuse music, theatre and comedy.

​’Livestock’s latest production is a mash-up of vaudevillian comedy double act, fantastic music and song narrative and some imaginative performance choices which, taken together, make for a sublimely hilarious event.’
Ian Wilkie, University of London

‘It was just great. So entertaining, interesting, hilarious and left us both feeling inspired. Great chemistry between you guys too. Shall be raving about it to friends that’s for sure.’ Jodie Platts

‘Best thing I saw all Fringe Festival this, and possible last year too!’
Jason, Brighton Fringe 2013
