The piece, which follows a young boy who blinds a number of horses, has design from Georgia Lowe, lighting from Jessica Hung Han Yun, composition and sound from Giles Thomas and movement from Shelley Maxwell.

In his five-star review of the show, critic Alun Hood said it was "haunting, engrossing theatre. Troubling, rich and riveting, it's a must-see."
