The Fourth Dog

  • The Old Fire Station 40 George Street Oxford, England, OX1 2AQ United Kingdom

Weddings bring the whole family together, and that’s when the problems start... 

It’s The Big Day and the Burney clan have assembled – including skeletons from the cupboard.  The bride is pregnant, the groom is unsure, the mother is stressed, and the aunt is in disgrace.  The grandparents haven’t stopped bickering for sixty years and don’t see why today should be any exception.  And the icing on the cake?  A couple of dead ancestors have turned up! 

What does it mean to be part of a family?  How does our heredity influence the way we love and hate, live and die?  The Fourth Dog is a comedy about breast cancer, marital breakdown, family baggage and grieving – and what could be funnier than that?

Ages 12+. 1 hr plus 20 min Q&A after each show with representatives from charities supporting Breast Cancer care. In the OFS Theatre. £5.
