A high-paced two-hander, A Horse Story is a theatrical cocktail of doormats and gun-slingers.

It holds within it Blinkers and Spurs - two funny and moving stories that follow the first time encounters of four extraordinary strangers.

In Blinkers, the walls are brought crashing down between two seemingly disparate neighbours: Amy, a slovenly punk rock fantasist and Monty, a fastidious librarian obsessed with horses.

In Spurs the audience is taken to the Wild West of America, where a Cowboy on the run has a strange and fateful exchange with a mysterious Indian.

Together, the shows celebrate the joys and foibles of human nature, and ask: why is it so difficult to communicate over the smallest distances?

Written and performed by Natalie Medlock (Arcadia) and Dan Musgrove (Angels in America, Antigone), A Horse Story: Blinkers and Spurs is an astute observation on the quirks of human nature, exploring the beauty that is found in the mundane, and everyday oddities of life.
