Following a successful tour of Rex the King into pubs and rural communities across England, Somerset’s Wassail Theatre Company are joining forces with Theatre Orchard to bring this new play to Wells.
Horses! Horses! is the darkly comical tale of a stolen horse, wild west-country soul and the mess we make of relationships. Landlord Johnny is desperately trying to save his pub, while his wife Susie is hiding out on Ted’s farm. A show performed in the midst of your local boozer with pub games, pints, crisps, heartbreak and laughter, county music, lots of karaoke and a few surprises.
“The Pub is the Hub, ladies and gents, so it’s use it or lose it time”. Johnny’s putting on a Big Fun fundraiser tonight at the Nags Head, though he’s not in the mood for ‘fun’.
Shortlisted for the Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Scriptspace Award, Horses! Horses! was developed through Bristol Old Vic Ferment.
"An innovative, entertaining, and perceptive piece of work with a clear impelling voice." Bristol Old Vic
"A fun play written in the vernacular of the pub, with a strong voice and a brave theatrical bent, that keeps audiences at its heart throughout." Tobacco Factory Theatres
Horses! Horses! is touring into pubs and bars across Somerset and Bristol. The tour finishes at The Little Theatre Wells – where the show was rehearsed!
Horses! Horses! has been made possible public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, and South Somerset District Council.
