Categorized as: Art & Galleries
Event tags: Performing Arts, Theater, Plays, Stage


Shows at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m.

Former art dealer Hobart Struther's voyage is interrupted by the death of his horse in a desert. Out of frustration, he kicks it. He stands trying to figure out what to do. Struther made millions by buying cheap paintings and reselling them.

In a midlife crisis, he has abandoned his wife and rich life for a trip to understand himself. The former art dealer laments his condition. He must bury the horse. This proves to be very difficult. He debates different facets of his personality and life, looking for authenticity until every angle seems doomed for failure.

This play is presented by Albuquerque's FUSION Theatre Company.
