The Last Great Hunt
By Arielle Gray & Tim WattsBuy Tickets
Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely elderly widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship. But when Mabel and Bart get separated in a storm, our puppy hero’s adventures really begin.
Combining puppetry, live action, animation and a beautiful original soundtrack, New Owner tells a heartbreakingly joyful story through the eyes of a lost dog. Full of magical moments and inventive stagecraft, this adorable comic tale of loss, friendship and new beginnings is the perfect show for anyone who has ever loved a pet.
Join us following the performance on Saturday 24 August 1pm in Brown’s Mart Theatre courtyard for some post-show puppy pats with RSPCA.
