Synopsis


"The play of the year for me was The Delight of Dogs and the Problems of People.


Funny, moving, and ridiculously well acted.


In an orderly world it would run for 100 years.


Rosalind Blessed and Duncan Wilkins will break your heart whilst making you think, which is the hallmark of great drama." (Andrew O'Hagan, New York Times Magazine)


Following the journey of a relationship as it disintegrates.


The Delights of Dogs and the Problems of People by Rosalind Blessed asks what causes a mind to unravel and why are we so slow to recognise the dangers lurking beneath our very roof.


This is not a story of monster and victim - how much easier would life be if things were so simple.


How can you know an abuser when they don't know themselves?


While our love for another human can so often be complicated and destructive, the simple, pure love of a dog for a human can shine a redemptive light in the darkest moment.
