Thursday, July 23, 2015 to Tuesday, August 25, 2015 The Night’s Mare

By Kevin Kerr; Directed by Courtenay Dobbie
Little Florence, gentle horse lover and babysitter extraordinaire, can soothe any fussy baby, quiet any tantrum and scare away monsters from under the bed. But her skills are tested when a Hollywood “supercouple” comes to town to research their next movie about a fabled magical mare rumored to live in the woods outside of Florence’s town. They have an unruly daughter who, having not slept in days, is driving them mad. Hoping to impress the celebrities, Florence’s mother volunteers her daughter’s services to look after the toddler for an evening. When the child escapes under Florence’s watch, she must follow her into the woods at night and bring her back to her parents before morning. As the hunt for the mythical mare escalates, Florence hunts the couple’s unbridled daughter on an all-night quest to tame the untamable beasts.

Thursday, July 23, 2015 to Tuesday, August 25, 2015 The Night’s Mare

By Kevin Kerr; Directed by Courtenay Dobbie
Little Florence, gentle horse lover and babysitter extraordinaire, can soothe any fussy baby, quiet any tantrum and scare away monsters from under the bed. But her skills are tested when a Hollywood “supercouple” comes to town to research their next movie about a fabled magical mare rumored to live in the woods outside of Florence’s town. They have an unruly daughter who, having not slept in days, is driving them mad. Hoping to impress the celebrities, Florence’s mother volunteers her daughter’s services to look after the toddler for an evening. When the child escapes under Florence’s watch, she must follow her into the woods at night and bring her back to her parents before morning. As the hunt for the mythical mare escalates, Florence hunts the couple’s unbridled daughter on an all-night quest to tame the untamable beasts.

But her skills are tested when a Hollywood “supercouple” comes to town to research their next movie about a fabled magical mare rumored to live in the woods outside of Florence’s town. They have an unruly daughter who, having not slept in days, is driving them mad. Hoping to impress the celebrities, Florence’s mother volunteers her daughter’s services to look after the toddler for an evening.

Thursday, July 23, 2015 to Tuesday, August 25, 2015 The Night’s Mare

By Kevin Kerr; Directed by Courtenay Dobbie
Little Florence, gentle horse lover and babysitter extraordinaire, can soothe any fussy baby, quiet any tantrum and scare away monsters from under the bed. But her skills are tested when a Hollywood “supercouple” comes to town to research their next movie about a fabled magical mare rumored to live in the woods outside of Florence’s town. They have an unruly daughter who, having not slept in days, is driving them mad. Hoping to impress the celebrities, Florence’s mother volunteers her daughter’s services to look after the toddler for an evening. When the child escapes under Florence’s watch, she must follow her into the woods at night and bring her back to her parents before morning. As the hunt for the mythical mare escalates, Florence hunts the couple’s unbridled daughter on an all-night quest to tame the untamable beasts.
