WASSAIL Theatre Company is joining forces with Theatre Orchard to send a new play into pubs across Somerset and North Somerset this autumn.

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’.

Horses! Horses! will be touring into pubs and bars and many of the shows will be free events where punters can leave a donation at the end. Some are ticketed and booking will be required.

Somerset’s flagship Wassail Theatre Company recently toured Rex the King to rural pubs across the south west. Theatre Orchard enable creative happenings in places and spaces across North Somerset.

The play is possible funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, and South Somerset District Council.
