By Horse With No Name
Horse With No Name brings you their most magical play yet! The Loch Ness Monster is out of the loch, and she's flopping onto The Stage at BATS Theatre!
Fab Beasts follows Vaughn and his fellow unicorns at Unicorn Property Management as tensions and water levels rise when the heavens open and only two of every kind are allowed to live.
Then dive deep down into the murky world of Detective Ness: mother, lover and Loch Ness Monster. Ness races to solve a string of grisly murders, and faces her most difficult adversary yet: the patriarchy. As well as a killer with a penchant for cured meats. A whodunnit with a case that proves to be almost as big as Nessie herself.
Fab Beasts is brought to you by the award winners of Spectacular Organised Chaos in the New Zealand Fringe Festival 2021, and was also nominated for Pure Joy. Inspired by myths of old, and Irish folk music, Horse With No Name have written a comedy that is a loch load of fun. Fab Beasts is a playful creature that will make you roar with laughter.
- November 5th - Saturday 2:00pm will be a Relaxed Performance
