Proud Haddock Theatre Company has today announced that Pete Ashmore and Cressida Bonas will lead the cast of W. H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood‘s rediscovered poetic drama, ‘The Dog Beneath The Skin‘, which runs at Jermyn Street Theatre from 7th to 31st March, 2018.
Directed by Jimmy Walters, the production will also feature Edmund Digby Jones, Eva Feiler, Rujenne Green, James Marlowe, Suzann Mclean and Adam Sopp in the ensemble.
The sleepy English village of Pressan Ambo has a secret.
Ten years ago, Sir Francis Crewe, heir to the local estate disappeared.
Every year a young man is chosen by lot to go searching for him.
Alan Norman, accompanied by a surprisingly intelligent dog, sets out on a journey through pre-War Europe.
First published in 1935 and first performed in 1936, Auden and Isherwood’s vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse has never seemed so timely. Part madcap misadventure, part piercing social satire the play originally served as a pre-war satire against the back drop to the rise of fascism in pre-war 1930’s Europe.
Using innovative set design, lighting, choreography and live music, the audience will be taken on a journey through multiple worlds of palaces, asylums, street corners and cabaret bars.
