About Black Beauty

Red Bridge and Traverse Theatre Company

Fresh from an acclaimed run in New York City, multi-award-winning, audience favourite Black Beauty returns home for two performances only, performed by Paul Curley and John Currivan.

From the cosy horsebox they call home, the McCuddy Brothers take the bit firmly between their teeth and tell the classic tale of Black Beauty as you’ve never seen it 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 of Black Beauty offers fun and adventure forfans of the book, classic TV show and those brand new to the tale.
