Description

After a five-star sell-out run in 2023, Burning Down the Horse is back! This immersive comedy epic drops you into the heart of the most iconic wooden animal in history – the Trojan Horse. Become part of this 'infectiously funny' (FringeReview.co.uk) tale as you contend with heroic egos, class clashes and sword supply issues. There's only one rule: Odysseus' word is law. And for the love of gods – no naked flames! Join us for an 'entertaining slice of lunchtime laughs' (Scotsman) and experience what really went on inside the belly of the beast.

In 2023 I saw 45 shows and Burning Down the Horse was in my top eight. Light, clever, and really funny I highly recommend seeing this show. The troupe's comedic timing was really first rate.
