About: And The Horse You Rode In On

Following the sell-out success of The Fahrenheit Twins at the Barbican in 2009, Told by an Idiot's distinctive storytelling returns with this sinister comedy of ineptitude.

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.

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.

‘The questioning intelligence they bring to their work is admirable and uncommonly powerful.’ The Times
