Thank you Hot Dog!

What an amazing week! 
Incredible audiences, lovely reviews and of course six brilliant performances.

We want to say a massive MASSIVE thank you to everyone who made this production possible: playwright extraordinaire Sarah Kosar, our own director Faye Merralls, the cast; Tessa Hatts, Penny Lisle, Rebecca Crankshaw and Ryan Anthony-Jones, lighting designer Nadia Neilson, set designer Emma Bailey, lighting assistant Zakk Hein, designer Brian Edwards, Hot Dog model Ellie Dickens, photographers Fonsaca Maylan-Brooker and Francesca Oldfield, Laura Crampsie and Rania Jumaily at The Last Refuge and last but not least producers Steph Lodge and Keziah Warner.

Keep an eye on the blog this week for a round up of all our reviews and some brilliant production stills, but in the meantime, here are a few behind-the-scenes shots from the week that was…

We battled the unseasonable arctic with blankets and hot water bottles for out audience. Pretty sure #HotDogHotWaterBottles should be trending by now...

Dog biscuits! Food is after all, a man's best friend, so Tessa (The Dog) made us all some delicious bone-shaped biscuits for closing night. Here she is tucking in with playwright Sarah.
