Love is a Horse

Sept. 4, 2013 7:00 p.m. - Sept. 11, 2013


Love is a Horse With a Broken Leg Trying To Stand While 45,000 People Watch by Fly Steffens directed by Emily Rindt Four Performances on the Patio of The Red Dot Cabaret-Style, with table service during the performance. Drink Specials TBA (beer, wine, and liquor selection pending). Admission is free, but with limited seating. Standing room will likely be available if you're late. Donations for the actors and artistic team encouraged! A play in three parts: Goldfish, And the Sun Wields Mercy, and Love. Repeat. Love is a Horse […] explores the cyclical, repetitive, and tragic nature of relationships and addiction. A man, haunted by the death of his childhood pet, is on the verge of eviction. A business-school dropout wagers everything to get the woman of his dreams. A lovesick photographer turns her subjects into stone. All are plagued by the inability to change. All are offered an opportunity to do so. Drawing from influences and experiences ranging from Bukowski to Joyce to life-as-a-twenty-something to the Absurd, LOVE IS A HORSE debuts in its first full production after several local staged readings and development workshops at Peck School of the Arts (2011) and Chicago Dramatists (2012). "The more serious end of surreal experimentation was on display in a very promising staged reading by UWM's Fly Steffens." - Russ Bickerstaff in his 2011 Year End Review for Express Milwaukee *Adult content* *Tobacco use onstage throughout the performance*
