The Antelope Party
Presented by OKC Rep in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary
“The Rust Belt Ponies Meet-Up Group for Adult Fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” gather weekly to visit Equestria—a land of enchantment (aka Ben’s apartment) in rural Pennsylvania. Here, these five friends role-play and revel in a pretend land where nothing bad can happen. When a foreboding neighborhood watch begins patrolling the world outside, fear and paranoia start to seep into the circle of Bronies and Pegasisters. This timely dark comedy explored what happens when a new social order upsets the dynamics of friendship, neighbors and an entire community.
