From critically acclaimed writer and performer Josephine Stewart-Tewhiu (Ruby Tuesday, The Pitmen Painters, Shortland Street, The Patriarch) and director Thomas Sainsbury (Supercity, Sunday Roast) comes an hilarious and touching tale about the black horse of modern depression told through theatre, animation and live illustration and featuring a literal horse.

New Years Eve. K Road. Central Auckland.

Drinks are poured, celebrations are loud, the kisses and colours are plentiful.

The sky cracks open with coloured light.

A sudden rumble silences the crowd. The Black is coming.

A stampede of a thousand black horses washes over the colour.

The fireworks suck themselves back in and hold their breath.

Everything is nothing now.

Cleo watches from her window, and one lone black horse watches her back.
