Real dogs, real stories, unreal theatre.
Dog lovers unite! 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.
Presented by Home of the Arts and The Good Room, Let’s Be Friends Furever runs over three shows on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October as part of this year’s WONDER at HOTA.
Performance contains adult themes and coarse language, haze effects and explores themes of grief and loss. Recommended age 12+. Tickets at hota.com.au.
