A Dog’s Tale, by Poppy Hollman, looks at canines past and present and the enduring love between people and their dogs. Mikron Theatre, in their 49th year of touring, are celebrating (wo)man’s best friend this season when they stage the premiere of this new comedy caper.
You’d be FURgiven for thinking that Mikron is just another run of the mill theatre company, but you’d be BARKING up the wrong tree. 2020 will see them LEAD you on a unique journey. It’s a PAWsome show you won’t be able to TERRIER yourself away from.
A Dog’s Tale will kick off its tour at Marsden Mechanics Hall on the 23rd May and then tour nationally by canal, river and road until 24th October.
Linda and her wayward rescue dog Gary are pursued by security through the halls and history of Crufts, accused of a terrible crime.
When Charles Cruft, the ‘Greatest Showman in Dogdom’, held his first show in 1891, he had a sense that dog ownership and breeding was about to become pretty big.
In this extraordinary world of heroic hounds, pampered pedigrees and naughty nobblers, does Gary have what it takes to win the day?
Why a play about dogs? Why not? Mikron tells the stories of the people behind the big events in history and the things that are close to our hearts. A great story, cracking songs and versatile quartet of actor musicians will guide audiences through the halls and history of Crufts.
