Inspired by a variety of sources including Hitchcock’s Sabotage, and the writings of Dario Fo and Gunter 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.

Told By An Idiot’s latest co-production with Plymouth’s Drum Theatre is an attempt to ‘do something political’ while retaining the company’s international reputation for innovation and comedy. And The Horse You Rode In On is exactly that.
Directors Paul Hunter and Hayley Carmichael have combined terrorist activity with episodes of Are You Being Served? in their attempt to illustrate the lengths to which fanatics will go to achieve results.
Said to have been inspired by Hitchcock’s Sabotage, Dario Fo and Gunter Grass, various attempts to ‘enlighten through demonstration’ throughout the ages are portrayed – from the abduction of the Trampolini family en route to perform at the French court of King Louis through ensuring young Stevie’s birthday goes off with a bang to a professor attempting to dissuade his erstwhile student from setting fire to her dog in the Grace Brothers’ café.

A fantastic production...the scenes in which actors offstage said the onstage dialouge and made the sound effects were pure genius! Would see this play again in a heartbeat. 5 stars....
