The Four Horsemen
The Life of Brian meets The Young Ones. The Four Horsemen is a satirical comedy which brings the fabled Horsemen of the Apocalypse into a contemporary setting. It follows their struggle to bring about the end of the world as they battle against modern advancements, a demanding management department and also against each other. Death and War see their lifelong friendship torn apart by jealousy and infighting after War begins a relationship with the upcoming Horsewoman hopeful Addiction. Pestilence introduces the team to his new disease, which sends victims through a dramatic enactment of the Seven Deadly Sins, and Famine struggles to bring together the team in a harmony they haven’t seen since the Dark Ages.
The play flip-flops between examining complex world events and issues, and problems that are equally important for the Horsemen, such as who ate Death’s last Curly Wurly.
Advisory: Political and religious satire. Comedy violence.
