Super Cowgirl and Mighty Miracle

By José Cruz González

September 24 - November 9, 2012

Our fall touring show:

From nationally acclaimed, award-winning playwright José Cruz González comes a new play commissioned by Metro Theater Company.

Six-year old Cory doesn’t want to live with this grumpy grandma she barely knows. Grandmother Autumn doesn’t much like the idea, either. She’s about to lose her home to foreclosure and is struggling to make ends meet. But what choice does she have? Cory’s dad has to find work, and this is the only solution for now.

As Cory and Grandmother Autumn work through the adjustments of their new family structure, a stray dog appears on the doorstep. It’s love at first sight for Cory, and positively the last straw for Grandmother Autumn.

In a delightfully surprising story filled with humor and heart, Super Cowgirl and Mighty Miracle reminds us love makes almost anything possible, even in hard times.
