The Natural Horse at Alleyway Theatre
Alleyway Theatre continues its 44th season with The Natural Horse. This contemporary fable by T. Adamson is the latest recipient of Alleyway’s annual Maxim Mazumdar New Play Award. The comedy is directed by Robyn Lee Horn and will begin previews Friday October 20th, with an opening night set for October 25th. Playwright Adamson will be featured in conversation with Horn following Pay What You Can Previews on October 22nd and 24th.
Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1954 book The Natural House, The Natural Horse is a daringly wild play about a family of ex-Soviet immigrants in suburban Wisconsin. When eldest daughter Masha brings home a feral horse named Goodboy to live under mom and dad’s roof, the play explodes with strange silliness and magical beauty. An incredibly theatrical look at how we search for people and spaces to call home, The Natural Horse is a breathtakingly ambitious and subversively hilarious exploration of human connection.
Performances will take place through November 11th. Pay What You Can Previews will be held on October 20th, 21st, 22nd and 24th at 7:30pm. October 22nd and 24th will be followed by a conversation with the playwright and director. Opening Night is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25th at 7:30pm.
