In Coppola’s infamous 1972 film, The Godfather, the head from a prize horse is cut off and placed in the bed of a Hollywood producer.

HorseHead is about the two men charged with this gruesome task…

These men are gangsters on the rise, so when this extreme job gets rung through they know they have to step up and deliver.

But there are significant obstacles to overcome, including the younger brother’s reluctance to enter the gangster life, and the small issue of the older brother being a passionate horse-lover…

Winner of the 2012 ROME INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL, HorseHead is snappy and tight, with enough twists to keep even the most experienced gangster constantly looking behind their back.

Saturday, July 4th, 8pm. Doors open at 7:30pm.

Tickets: $20
