Emily K. Harrison and Erin Rollman on Peggy Jo and the Desolate Nothing

When the FBI tried to track down Cowboy Bob, a repeat bank robber in Texas, they had no idea that they were looking for a single, middle-aged woman who used her heists to fund her ailing mother's health-care costs. Tallas was a modern-day outlaw, making her tale irresistible to both square product theatre company and Buntport Theater Company, which have collaborated in writing and producing Peggy Jo and the Desolate Nothing. In advance of this weekend's opening, Westword spoke with Emily K. Harrison of square product and Erin Rollman of Buntport to find out more about the production.
