They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?
Time Out says
Marianne Elliott directs a new immersive production of Horace McCoy’s classic novel about a Depression-era dance contest
The Bridge will be transformed into a 1930s dancehall for Marianne Elliott and Steven Hoggett’s production of ‘They Shoot Horse, Don’t They?’. It’s a new stage adaptation by playwright Paula Vogel of Horace McCoy’s 1935 classic novel that follows a Great Depression-era dance competition, as a series of couples gradually grind themselves down as they compete for $1,000 in a draining feat of endurance dancing. Seating in the pit will enable audience members to enter a ballot to join the dancing on the floor.
