The Dog/The Cat
THE DOG / THE CAT, the sharpest most entertaining show of Australia’s 2017 theatre season makes its UK debut at The Hope Theatre.
THE DOG / THE CAT is a delicious theatrical treat; a romantic comedy with real heart and genuine charm.
It’s the quintessential human story of sex, heartbreak, love, and dogs in a park, in fact, it could be called Two Men, One Woman, a Park and a Dog – because everyone knows that nothing breaks the ice like a cute dog. Brendan Cowell’s (star of Yerma, Life of Galileo) play The Dog paints a not-so-flattering portrait of the tricky line between friendship and romance, and of the insatiable appetite of Jack Russell terriers for the most disgusting things they can find.
Owning a cat is not easy. Co-owning a cat with your ex is less easy. Co-owning a smart-talking, irritable and meddling cat with your ex is pure comedy. Lally Katz (Back at the Dojo, Stories I Want to Tell You in Person) brings her trademark charm and surreal humour to The Cat.
The London debut of this romantic and comedic delight is set to be a big hit after two extended sell out seasons in Sydney.
