The wait is almost over!
Already a success in Spain, Argentina, Germany and Greece, The Little Pony arrives in the UK on Tuesday 12th June.
Written by Paco Bezerra and inspired by real events, the play reflects on family, diversity, bullying, parent and school attitudes towards children who escape the so-called “general rule”. Watch the teaser video above, created by Elena Molina with music by Yaiza Varona.

In the playwright’s own words about The Little Pony
‘I once read the news on Gryson Bruce, a 9-year-old boy from North Carolina, who in 2014 suffered several physical and verbal attacks as a result of carrying a My Little Pony backpack. He was forbidden to bring the backpack to the school and I couldn’t believe it. What is better, to follow the views of the majority or to defend your own child’s freedom of choice?’ 
Paco Bezerra, playwright
