Rehearsal images for Proud Haddock’s production of The Dog Beneath the Skin have been released ahead of the show’s run at the Jermyn Street Theatre from the 7th March. Here’s a glimpse of what has been happening…
Directed by Jimmy Walters, The Dog Beneath the Skin is set to star Pete Ashmore (as Alan Norman and Cressida Bonas as The Dog. They will be joined by Edmund Digby Jones, Eva Feiler, Rujenne Green, James Marlowe, Suzann Mclean and Adam Sopp .
The sleepy village of Pressan Ambo has a secret. Ten years ago, Francis Crewe disappeared. Every year, a man is chosen by lot to go searching for Francis but none have ever come home. This year, Alan Norman is chosen and accompanied by a surprisingly intelligent dog; he sets out on a journey through 1930’s pre-war Europe.
A nationalist threat however is on the rise and when Alan returns home to Pressan Ambo, he finds it a very different place to how he left it.
The play, written by W. H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood, was first published in 1935 and first performed in 1936 and is a vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse.
Talking about the production, director Jimmy Walters said: “It’s great for Proud Haddock to be part of this exciting new season at the Jermyn Street Theatre and we feel both excited and privileged to be staging such a relevant piece with so much to offer an audience.”
The production will feature designs by Rebecca Brower, sound by Dinah Mullen, lighting by Catherine Webb and music by Jeremy Warmsley.
The Dog Beneath the Skin will play at the Jermyn Street Theatre from the 7th to the 31st March. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.jermynstreettheatre.co.uk/show/dog-beneath-skin/
