good dog

Writer Arinzé Kene Director Natalie Ibu Designer Amelia Jane Hankin Lighting Designer Zoe Spurr Sound Designer Helen Skiera

Mum’s promised him that bike so even when school or homelife bites, he knows to keep his chin up, his head down and his shirt clean. No harsh word, no sudden push to the ground will distract him from growing up to be a good man. Because in the end, everyone who’s good gets what they deserve. Don’t they?

good dog - set during the early noughties - tells the story of growing up in a multi-cultural community, and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control.

Delicately observed and fearlessly told by writer Arinzé Kene (Netflix’s Crazyhead, BBC’s Eastenders, Channel 4’s Youngers, West End smash Girl From the North Country, and Misty at Bush Theatre and Trafalgar Studios), good dog embarks on its second national tour following its acclaimed premiere in spring 2017. Starring Kwaku Mills.

Come with your family, friends or on your own. good dog is entertaining and thought provoking with a little something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a night out with your mates or a way to broaden your horizons, good dog is for you.
