Let's Be Friends Furever

Created by The Good Room 

Real dogs, real stories, unreal theatre!

HOTA will be transformed into a dog park this October as besotted owners and their beloved pooches take to the stage, sharing stories of love, loyalty and laughter.

Theatre-makers The Good Room have searched puppy playgrounds high and low to find local canines with barkworthy tails to tell. From an 80 kilogram dog with his own bedroom, a dogfluencer with more followers than you, and a national champion with fur to die for, hear from their companions in this hour of uplifting – and tear-jerking – theatre. Featuring video bits and live interviews with owners, vets and trainers, it’s the ultimutt live dogumentary for anyone who loves dogs.

From poodles to pugs, hounds to dames, it’s puppy love that’ll leave you howling.
