“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.


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, country music, lots of karaoke and a few surprises.


Shortlisted for the Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Scriptspace Award, Horses! Horses! was first developed through Bristol Old Vic Ferment.


Wassail and Theatre Orchard first toured it in 2018 and, thanks to generous support from Arts Council England through the National Lottery, will be touring it across Somerset and the south west in 2020.

"Bursting with delicious West County flavour" Weston Super Mum

"A raucous, tender, enthralling and very entertaining evening." South Bristol Voice

"Buy a pint and play along." Exeunt Theatre Magazine 

We are grateful for the support we've received from Arts Council England to tour this show across the south west.
