Seriously Stylized Comedy: No Horse Town

No Horse Town
Written by Lindsay Price

No Horse Town by Lindsay Price is all about style—style in the language with the specific manner in which the characters speak, style in the action with the numerous character ‘poses’ and the very stylized telling of what happened in the town of Heywood. Together with Heather Mortimer, the talented student performers at Carleton Place High School in Carleton Place, Ontario took a comedic journey through this no car, no horse, no street town and found that crossing the street in this small town is as daring and dangerous as it gets…

Carleton Place High School’s production of No Horse Town (shown here in rehearsal) won Outstanding Production at the Kingston and St. Lawrence District Sears Drama Festival! This was our first time competing. We will go on to compete at the Regionals in a month. Director, Peyton McClelland, also won an Award of Excellence for her hard work.

Congratulations, Carleton Place High School!
