Background


THE DOG / THE CAT, the sharpest most entertaining show of Australia's 2017 theatre season makes its UK debut at The Hope Theatre.

Synopsis


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.
