Violence

One character makes a reference to thinking about hitting someone with a heavy object. Otherwise there are no references or occurrences of violence, onstage or offstage.    

Sex

There are references to infidelity and heartbreak, a subject frequently included in Patsy Cline's music and lyrics. One character also refers to someone as a slut in a casual tone. Otherwise, there is nothing sexual or romantic that should be of concern.

Drinking, Drugs, and Smoking

Every character, including the members of the Bodacious Bobcat Band, drink throughout the play, mostly in the form of inexpensive beer, including Pabst Blue Ribbon and Schlitz. Patsy and Louise both mention and use cigarettes, as it was more socially accepted in the era the story takes place. 

Families Can Talk About…

Always... Patsy Cline provides a good opportunity to speak with young people about friendship and using music and lyrics to express complex emotions like love and heartbreak.
