Co-Produced by Wassail Theatre Compnay and Theatre Orchard
Show: Horses! Horses! – a co-production by Theatre Orchard and Somerset’s flagship Wassail Theatre Company, in association with Bristol Old Vic. Written by Rina Vergano. Shortlisted for the Tobacco Factory Theatres’ ScriptSpace Award, Horses! Horses! was first developed through Bristol Old Vic Ferment.
Critically-acclaimed touring pub show ‘Horses! Horses!’ canters into Bristol, following its successful showcase in Autumn 2018.
Johnny is in a fix: his pub is failing, he’s drinking like a fish, and his wife Sue has left him. In a desperate attempt to raise funds, Johnny puts on a ‘Big Fun Night’: a pub quiz, a meat raffle, and lots of karaoke. When local farmer and horse-breeder Ted gets involved, the whole night unravels with surprising results. ‘Horses! Horses!’ is a darkly comical tale of a stolen horse, wild west-country soul and the mess we make of relationships. Brimming with live music and humour and flavoured with pub games, pints, crisps and karaoke, punters are invited to saddle up at their local pub and enjoy the theatrical ride.
There is no charge for these events, though a donation in the bucket at the end of the performance would be much appreciated
No booking required but be sure to get there early to secure a seat!
“…half hyper-realistic collapsing pub quiz, half mystical exploration of the connections between people, and between people and the land.
…a completely joyous theatre experience (and a great night out at the pub). I would thoroughly recommend buying a pint and playing along.”
