Adapted and directed by Mark Giesser and starring Beth Burrows, The Lady With a Dog is transferring from the White Bear Theatre (where it received praise from critics - including a 5 star rating from ActDrop) to the Tabard Theatre where it will play from 14 March to 7 April 2018.

The play is an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's short story, first published in 1899.

Director Mark Giesser says ...

"I'm delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Michael Kingsbury to develop the show at the White Bear, and am now equally delighted to be able to work with Simon Reilly to bring the production to the Tabard, which has provided a home for a number of my productions."

Simon Reilly of the Tabard Theatre commented ...

"We are thrilled to be working with innovative creatives like Mark and dynamic theatres such as the White Bear to bring successful shows to new audiences.

We hope this collaboration could be the start of further successful transfers across the Off West End theatre scene."

Michael Kingsbury of the White Bear Theatre says ...

"The show has been a success for us at the White Bear, and it's great to know that it can have a further life and be seen by more audiences at the Tabard."


Damian Granville is a banker and devoted family man with an unconventional way of taking his summer holidays: he travels alone and looks for a woman to seduce.

This particular year he spots a beautiful young lady walking a white Pomeranian dog.

How can he resist?

He's a skillful player and sure of success.

Another lovely summer interlude.

Except Anne Dennis isn't quite what he bargains for.
