This December, Andy Manley, Andy Cannon and Shona Reppe bring an energetic new family show, inspired by best-selling book Black Beauty, cantering onto the stage.

Reeling from unexpected events in his personal life, Tom can’t avoid returning home for Christmas – and all that he’s left behind. The directionless old friends, his fragile mother, even the sticky pub carpet. Nothing seems to have changed, but everything has. It’s time for Tom to face his family and his future head-on. Tue 13 – Fri 23 Dec
