Can a country cowboy and a sophisticated virtuoso change their tune for love? What do a classical musician and retired country and western singer have in common? Not a lot according to Monica who really just wants Gary, aka Rhinestone Rex, to do the job he’s being paid for and renovate her kitchen. She hates his taste in music, his attitudes to women and the columns he want to put on her kitchen cabinets. Gary can’t find much about Monica to recommend to anyone but still finds her attractive in a cold, rigid and inflexible kind of way. Can they find a way past all their conflicts towards a harmonious and fulfilling relationship? Or will their differences keep them from making beautiful music together? Playwright David Williamson explains “it started when I watched a female violinist in a large orchestra and wondered what her life was really like. When I started interviewing violinists I started to find the answers were not what I thought they would be. The one thing they seemed to have in common was an acute dislike of country and western music, so of course my playwrights mind stated to say, “What if?” Rhinestone Rex and Miss Monica is master playwright David Williamson’s 43rd play, and director Sandra Bates’ 12th Williamson production in 12 years.
