“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 toured it in 2018 and 2020. COVID-19 curtailed the 2020 tour, so we're going to try to finish touring it later this year.
