Hen-pecked greeting-card writer, Erwin Trowbridge, has an uncanny ability for predicting the winners of horse races. For Erwin it’s just a hobby, but when his extraordinary talent is discovered by a down-and-out pack of gamblers, Erwin suddenly finds himself very far from his safe suburban home in Ozone Heights. This dizzy and delightful Depression era comedy, by one of the American theatre’s most accomplished showmen, will bring a much needed lift to your Recession-wearied spirits.
“There’s no company in New York like TACT (The Actors Company Theatre) for reviving older and old-fashioned plays and breathing new life into them with solid and professional productions” —Broadway World Review
“In this age of short-attention-span audiences, if you’re going to perform an old-fashioned play the old-fashioned way — that is, with two intermissions — you’d better have a spark to inject into that third act to make audience members glad they stayed around. The Actors Company Theater, in its pleasant production of “Three Men on a Horse” at the Beckett Theater, has one, and his name is James Murtaugh” —The New York Times
“When the lights fade and the race begins, we’re hooked.” —TheaterMania
