Miniature Horses Don't Go to Heaven and Other Plays Inspired by Real News Headlines

Miniature Horses Don’t Go to Heaven was first produced by Box Wine Theatre at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater in September of 2010.  This production included five darkly comedic scenes based on real news headlines so messed up that playwright, Adam Sharp, couldn’t help but turn the headlines into absurdist plays.

Headlines of inspiration include “Pit Bulls Kill Miniature Horse Donated to Cancer-Stricken Child,” “Man Kidnaps Woman Who Refuses Marriage Proposal,” “Man Accused of Attacking Body in Open Casket During Funeral,” “Girl’s Prosthetic Leg Stolen — Twice,” and “Man Kills Deer With Bare Hands in Bedroom.”
