And The Horse You Rode In On - Told by an Idiot


And The Horse You Rode In On - A sequence of serious follies, a dark comedy by Told by an Idiot, at the Barbican Pit from 27 April to 14 May 2011, as part of a UK tour.

Inspired by a variety of sources including Hitchcock’s Sabotage, and the writings of Dario Fo and Günter Grass, And The Horse You Rode In On examines extreme acts of violence and the lengths people will go to for their beliefs.

A dark, funny and deeply disturbing look at how powerless we are to stop people once they’ve reached the point of no return. A rather well known rabbit attempts to stop an alien attack, a rebellious student contemplates an atrocious act and the strangest ever episode of Are You Being Served is about to begin.

Conceived by Hayley Carmichael and Paul Hunter, directed by Paul Hunter, designed by Sophia Clist. Produced by Told by an Idiot and Drum Theatre Plymouth production Commissioned by the Barbican and Brighton Festival.
