"We must be generous in the sharing of our bodies. How did Miss Parker put it? Don't put all your eggs into one bastard."

Vladimir has problems. His servant won't listen, his ex is coming to stay, and his taxidermy shop is attracting unwanted interest from the Police. Worse, there's a distinct possibility the Messiah is coming for breakfast. Anarchic and unexpected, The Tin Horizon is a playful vision of where we might be heading, and why we don't want to go there.

Orlando Wells is an actor and a writer. As an actor his credits include: The History Boys (UK tour and West End) Pirandello's Henry IV (Donmar Warehouse); and A Midsummer Night's Dream, Antony and Cleopatra and Othello (RSC). He also appeared in the long running Channel 4 series As If. As a writer his credits include: His first play, The Winter Room, played at the RSC fringe festival, since then Orlando has written three more plays and two episodes of robot cartoon XOL.

Phoebe Barran has worked for the RSC as an assistant director and for The National Theatre as a staff director on The History Boys.
