Farce and satire abound in the premiere of Richard
bitterly funny black comedy Dog Ends.
The time is tomorrow. Middle aged George is under increasing
emotional and financial pressure looking after his father
and his beloved dog. When George confides in neighbourhood
friend Henry that the dog is nearing the end of his time, he
is passed the contact of a highly-recommended vet. However,
there is a serious misunderstanding over just what it is the
vet actually does and who he works for.
Last seen as part of the BBC's popular Play For Today
series, Dog Ends has been adapted and updated by
Richard Harris for its premiere at the Tabard Theatre.
Very funny and frequently
that it is totally black
