THE FOURTH DOG

BY ZENA FORSTER

Dramaturge - John Retallack
Directed by Tristan Pate
Human Story theatre - The Fourth Dog

July 2017

Its the Big Day, but the happy couple arent suited, the grandparents wont stop bickering, the disgraced auntie has gate-crashed, and a couple of dead ancestors have turned up!  Breast cancer, marital breakdown, family baggage and grieving – what could be funnier?

Running time 50 mins.
Followed by a 20 minute post-show Q&A with representatives from charities supporting breast cancer care.

An informal atmosphere is created for the Q&A, facilitated by the two actors, with local specialists able to signpost people to their local services. Building on the story within the play, the audience is also encouraged to share their own experiences, both to ‘offload’ and also to help support fellow audience members, if appropriate.
