Sharp's title scene "Miniature Horses Don't Go to Heaven" was originally staged by Swandive Theatre in 2008 in the ten-minute play festival, "Quickies". The full length production of the show was produced by Box Wine Theatre in 2010 at Bryant Lake Bowl.

Founded in 2008 by Adam Sharp and Bethany Simmons, Box Wine Theatre's mission is to bring high quality theatrical productions to the stage on a low budget. Our goal is to bring a meaningful experience to our audience while sparking new ideas and encouraging the questioning of mainstream social norms and opinions.

Box Wine Theatre holds the belief that human nature is beautiful in its' flaws and we celebrate those flaws by producing stylistically or thematically unique shows which represent the comedy and tragedy that exists in all of us.
