THE DOG WALKER
By Paul Minx
Directed by Harry Burton
“I am the most emotionally responsive dog walker in the district. I scored 4.8 on the City Empathy Test.”
As a professional dog walker, you meet all sorts of people, and Herbert has met more than his fair share. But he’s never come across anyone quite like Keri, alone in her flat surrounded by empty ouzo bottles. And where exactly is she keeping her Pekingese dog?
Paul Minx’s story of finding connection in the big city is as moving as it is funny, proving that hope springs in the most unlikely situations.
Praise for Paul Minx’s plays.
