Drawing from influences and experiences ranging from Bukowski to Joyce to life-as-a-twenty-something to the Absurd, LOVE IS A HORSE debuts in its first full production after several local staged readings and development workshops at Peck School of the Arts (2011) and Chicago Dramatists (2012).

A man, haunted by the death of his childhood pet, is on the verge of eviction. A business school drop out wagers everything to get the girl of his dreams. A lovesick photographer turns her subjects into stone. All are plagued by the inability to change. All are offered an opportunity to do so.
Love Is A Horse… played to standing room only audiences all four nights, and received warm previews and reviews from both the Milwaukee Journal~Sentinel and the Shepherd Express. Donations both from visionary benefactors and audience members allowed the production to pay all expenses and give a stipend to all performers and staff. Well done, Fly!
