One of the best-selling books of all time comes to Macrobert Arts Centre, in a re-telling that is not to be missed.

£8.50 / £30 Wee Group Saver

From the cosy horsebox they call home, Andy and Andy take the bit firmly between their teeth and tell the classic tale of Black Beauty as you've never seen before.

Saddle up, jump on and gallop headlong into a story where loneliness gives way to hope, friends become heroes, and courage saves the day.

Blending storytelling, music and puppetry, this vibrant re-telling offers fun and adventure for previous fans of the classic and also for those who are brand new to the tale. It's sure to warm your heart during the coldest of winter nights. Entertaining for all ages, you'd be a foal to miss it! 

Performed by Andy Manley (White, My House) and Andy Cannon (Labyrinth, Arthur) with design by Shona Reppe (White, Huff) this re-telling of Black Beauty is not to be missed.
