Following a sell-out 5-star production at Edinburgh Fringe '22, Fishing 4 Chips are back with Burning Down The Horse, a brand-new immersive comedy set onboard the most iconic wooden animal in history – the Trojan Horse. Whilst being wheeled towards (almost) certain doom, you'll have to contend with heroic egos, class clashes, and sword supply issues. There's only one rule: Odysseus' word is law. Oh, and for the love of gods – no naked flames! Join your fellow soldiers and experience what really went on inside the belly of the beast.
