Boogaloo Stu and Flick Ferdinando's comedy musical is an uproarious and merciless exposé of the cold-blooded takeover striking our communities in the name of regeneration.
Faced with imminent closure, publicans Kevin and Babs Chisholm from the Dog & Dumplings take on the big boys, in this musical tale of a busy boozer doing battle with dodgy developers. As the wrecking ball swings ever closer, could Kev and Babs end up under cling film in their own Meat Raffle, or will they make mincemeat of the developers? Last Orders At The Dog & Dumplings is a riotous knees-up showcasing new writing, character comedy and original music, all the while underlining the serious risks faced by our beloved British pub culture. With pubs being shuttered at an alarming rate, gentrification continues apace; and it would seem that our communities, both urban and rural, are being hollowed out and left for dead by developers driven by greed.
“Rowdy, absurd, heartfelt lo-fi musical about the death of the great British boozer – fun, rousing knees-up tunes and a great set.”
