Praise for Proud Haddock’s previous productions.
“ENTERTAINING AND POWERFULLY ACTED” The Guardian
“SOMETHING PRETTY SPECIAL” Time Out
“In fact, we do not even know
If he be living still or no.”
The sleepy English village of Pressan Ambo has a secret. Ten years ago, Sir Francis Crewe, heir to the local estate disappeared. Every year a young man is chosen by lot to go searching for him. Alan Norman, accompanied by a surprisingly intelligent dog, sets out on a journey through pre-War Europe.
Part madcap misadventure, part piercing social satire, Auden and Isherwood’s vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse has never seemed so timely.
Two of the most significant voices of the Twentieth Century, Auden and Isherwood were lifelong friends and intermittently lovers. Auden has been hailed as the modern poet and Isherwood’s The Berlin Stories are indelibly inked on popular imagination through Cabaret. The Dog Beneath the Skin was their first dramatic collaboration.
Proud Haddock celebrate unearthed stories from classical playwrights. They arrive at Jermyn Street Theatre hot off their sold-out hit Mrs. Orwell, starring Cressida Bonas and Peter Hamilton-Dyer. Previous productions include The Trackers of Oxyrhynchus and A Subject of Scandal and Concern (Finborough).
