War veteran Neville is intent on paying a tribute to his dog that would be befitting of any of his good mates. Unfortunately, he can't get his hands on a cannon to initiate a 21-gun salute. So instead, he is doing the next best thing, by playing the decaying corpse its favourite song 21 times before he puts him in the ground. But it's taking ages, and Nev's boarder Olivia and her rejected admirer Warwick find themselves walking an emotional tightrope to sensitively fast-track getting the dog buried.
DOG is a bittersweet, enchantingly endearing black comedy about an old man’s love for his best friend.
From the folks who brought you The Lonesome Buckwhips, Wolfgang Creative, in association with The Basement, are proud to present the world premiere of DOG by Ben Hutchison.
Directed by Jeff Szusterman
Starring Mick Innes (Echo Point, Super City, Zen Dog, Hounds), Gareth Williams (Apollo 13, A Basement Christmas Carol, Spartacus) and Shavaughn Ruakere (Shortland Street, Sione's Wedding)
