In a stable yard, with pitchforks and straw bales at the ready, Patrick and Hamish take the bit firmly between their teeth and tell the classic tale of Black Beauty. Saddle up, jump on and gallop headlong into a story where loneliness gives way to hope, and courage saves the day.

This Christmas, the Traverse and Red Bridge join Scotland’s finest artists making work for young people, to bring life and invention to one of the best-selling books of all time.

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 makes an ideal theatre trip for the whole family.

Black Beauty Traverse Theatre 10 Cambridge Street, EH1 2ED. Tickets here
