Written by Judith Prior- A Comic cowboy send up of the American Wild West. The Silver Slipper is in financial trouble on account of the drought. Maggie May and her girls have tried to diversify, but there isn’t much to do to stimulate new business. Little White Dove and Father O’Malley have tried their best to rescue the town, but all seems lost, when Cecil turns up from the city. Maggie’s mortgage with the Wild Westpac bank is about to be foreclosed. Even the flapjack flippin’ competition hasn’t raised enough money to clear the debt. How this bunch of larger than life characters rally ‘round and pull together to save their town, is a rootin’ tootin’ ton of fun.   How the West was Fun!!
