An astonishing debut play exposing the tragic underbelly of "post-everything" America Bob and Sam are two regular guys chewing the fat, putting the world to rights over a bottle of Jack Daniels and a game of poker, apparently trapped in an empty bar-room in this latter-day America Waiting for Godot. Conversation is rapid-fire and ranges from God and fishing to gambling and art, building to a deeply-felt exploration of the values of mainstream America. What emerges through their extraordinary dialogue is a portrait of a culture caught in a painful flux; a dichotomy between a nostalgic, reactionary sentiment and a desire to forge ahead with something new.Horse Country was a fringe hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2002, winning the Best of the Fringe Firsts prize, before moving to the Riverside, London "A really substantial piece of theatre; sharp, brilliant, intense" Scotsman
