production information

Winner of the 2011 Place Prize, It Needs Horses tells the tale of two down at heel performers and their increasingly desperate attempts to entertain the crowd.

Home for Broken Turns is the first showing of a new work from Lost Dog which expands the story of this faded ringmaster and his bedraggled assistant.

Please note that due to injury Anna Finkel will be replaced by Sita Ostheimer for Saturday evening’s performance.
