Cart Before the Horse is committed to exploring the authentic teenage voice, with the goal of inspiring dialogue amongst young people and exploring how their world has been expressed by playwrights in contemporary theatre. Founded by Ottawa born and based emerging artist, Megan Carty, the company mounted its first production in January 2014 to sold-out houses and rave reviews. Their adaptation of Joan Macleod’s The Shape of a Girl was awarded a Spirit of the Capital Youth award, remounted for anti-bullying month, and went on to tour high schools and universities in the Ottawa and Gatineau area. Their production of Judith Thompson’s Perfect Pie was a part of TACTICS last year and was nominated for a Prix Rideau Award for Outstanding Production and won the Prix Rideau Award for Outstanding Direction (Paul Griffin).
