Descriptions of the characters
English Pantomime - jokes, visual humour, etc. - in a Wild West setting.
There's a hoe-down coming up and dame Ellie-May wants to look her best. Unfortunately her jewels have been stolen by Tex Gunslinger and his sidekick Heinz. Will Barrow, the new Sheriff, forces a show-down with Tex in the hope of impressing the beautiful Mary-Lou. (And if that isn't enough, there's added confusion from a snake-oil salesman and his Injun accomplice, a judge who cheats at cards and a troublesome barmaid.)
