They Shoot Horses, Don't They?


We’re sorry to say that They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? won’t be going ahead at the Bridge Theatre this November. We and our partners on the production, Elliott & Harper, hope that it will be possible to mount the show at some point in the future.

If you have a booking for this show we can organise a refund – either to your original payment method or as a credit to your account at the Bridge. (That would be very helpful indeed.)  You can be in touch with us at


The real-life dance marathons of Depression-era America could last weeks, even months.

Paula Vogel’s new play is based on Horace McCoy’s classic story of ambition, desperation and determination.

In Marianne Elliott and Steven Hoggett’s production, The Bridge will be transformed into a 1930s dance hall.

Set design by Bob Crowley, music by Charlotte and Mike Truman, and casting by Charlotte Sutton. A co-production between London Theatre Company and Elliott & Harper productions, with Brandon Millan and Rick Sparks.

If you would like the chance to join the dance, select Stalls Rows A–D , AA–MM or Gallery 1 AA–CC.
