July Events at Horse Trade Theatre Company


The BE Company presents
We Are Misquotes Texts
Written by Harrison Davis & Directed by Theresa Buchheister
July 8-17 @ 8pm
Cow, a 14-year-old tap prodigy, has had his life uprooted. His parents mysteriously vanish while working in Turkey and in turn, his grandmother moves Cow to a world of sand and suburbia in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In retaliation Cow stops communicating, stops dancing and retreats to a shadow land of dreams and visions of his missing parents. A delicate blend of fever dream and coming of age story, Misquoted explores the awkwardness of adolescence, the crippling effects of loss, and the surprisingly potent power of love.
