New Owner

The Last Great Hunt | 1 – 16 October

From the creators of international smash hits The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new show about loss and friendship, told through a dog’s eyes.

Bernie is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship – but Mabel is old, and Bernie is young – and suddenly alone.

In their trademark style of puppetry and animation, New Owner takes us on a heartbreakingly joyful adventure into the world of a dog.
