The Prostitute and the Cow

Written by Sarah Loucks | Choreography by Celina Chapin
Directed by Antoinette Bianco
Presented by Mouth Radio & The VORTEX


In an attempt to escape the violence of their lives, a barren dairy cow and an ex-stripper set out across America with nothing but an old shopping cart. Abandoning everything they know for the hope of finding a home, the Prostitute and the Cow embark on a journey that will leave them forever changed.

While rambling down the neon highways of the American South West, the unlikely duo converse with a drunken angel, take over a strip club, and reckon with the lives they’ve left behind. Seattle based director, Antoinette Bianco, leads this up and coming Austin cast in The Prostitute & The Cow, a dark, absurd comedy about two women who, when left with nothing, must learn to build a home in a world that was not meant for them.
