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

Box Wine Theatre produced Miniature Horses Don’t Go to Heaven for the second time in August, 2014 at New Century Theatre in Minneapolis as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. This production included six 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,” “Doctors Grow New Ear on Woman’s Arm,” and “Man Kills Deer With Bare Hands in Bedroom.”
