Red Bridge and Traverse Theatre Company presents
Created by Andy Manley, Andy Cannon and Shona Reppe
Join Red Bridge Arts and Traverse Theatre Company as they bring an energetic new production, inspired by Anna Sewell’s best-selling book Black Beauty, cantering onto the stage.
From the cosy horsebox they call home, Andy and Andy take the bit firmly between their teeth and tell the classic tale of Black Beauty. Saddle up, jump on and gallop headlong into a story where loneliness gives way to hope, friends become heroes, and courage saves the day.
Blending storytelling, music and puppetry, this vibrant re-telling of Black Beauty offers fun and adventure for fans of the book, classic TV show and those brand new to the tale.
Performed by Andy Manley (White, Mikey & Addie) and Andy Cannon (Tales of a Grandson, Labyrinth), with design by Shona Reppe (White, Huff).
