Full press release
From the company that created the award winning show The Bastard Queen, Naughty Corner productions presents its second production, Not The Horse, an outrageously, unapologetic crime comedy which follows three very different groups and their hysterically unfortunate few days.
Tony is a twenty-something 'Scouser' who finds himself in deep sh*t! Horse sh*t, to be precise. After losing an illegal horseracing bet with a notorious group of London gangsters, Tony and his friends find themselves desperately searching for a plan to come up with £250,000 in just four days. After a whirlwind of admirable ideas, accidental robbery, Leonard Cohen, horse tranquilizers and a lot of... well... semen, Not The Horse spirals into a loud, crashing finish.
Written and directed by Mikee Dickinson (The Bastard Queen) the play is brought to life by performances from a talented cast including; Tony Bessant, Paul J Williams, Adam Parkinson, Carl Morris, Ryan Leder (National Theatre's We Lost Elijah), Tom Silverton, Adam Nicholls, Michael Hawkins (A Midsummer's Night's Dream, ITV's Cilla), Calun Griffin (The Bastard Queen), Phil Bulman (The Bastard Queen), Callum Forbes and comedian Daniel Carmichael (Twelfth Night) as Silk. Additional technical and production work also by Kate Brady, Jemma Lynch, Tom Lyth and Tom Silverton.
Naughty Corner is a new Theatre Production Company that debuted at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014. Their first show began as a dissertation piece between five drama students at Edge Hill University. From this, the idea of a post-apocalyptic comedy was conceived, and The Bastard Queen was born. The company won the National Student Drama Festivals - Edinburgh Award 2014, with The Bastard Queen. The play has since been performed at The Lantern Theatre Liverpool and London's Pleasance Theatre (Islington). Their second show, Not The Horse, will run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015.
