Palomino is a solo show about a handsome and enigmatic Irish horse drawn carriage driver in Central Park who begins moonlighting as an escort for wealthy New York women. Becoming sexually involved with an Australian widow, their relationship deepens in a way that neither was anticipating. Palomino is a story told from five people’s perspectives—from the carriage driver, the Australian widow, a girl he has a brief fling with, the madam who sets the dates up, and the English publisher he later goes to when trying to secure a book deal for a memoir of his New York sexual adventures.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
