NO DOGS

Written by Anna Glynn & Carmen Harris
Directed by Anna Glynn
Music and Sound Design by Robin Colyer

NO DOGS is a combined audio drama and animations project funded by Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Winston visits Dermot’s grave each year on his old friend’s birthday. Tending the plot, he reminisces, and Winston is sure Dermot responds, the vividity of their shared memories seemingly overcoming death itself. Together, they revisit the colour and vivacity of their hopeful start in post-war England, and the bringing together of their families, one Irish, one Jamaican, in a single household. But when it comes to Dermot’s sudden departure from Winston’s life, the grave falls silent, and what took place so many years before remains a mystery. That is, until a familiar woman appears at the graveside for one final farewell.

Flintlock Theatre presents a sparkling audio play by Carmen Harris (Eastenders, Windrush Monologues: Soon Gone, BBC) and Anna Glynn (Four Score Years and Ten, Theatre Royal Winchester; Don Q, Flintlock Theatre) in a celebration of the communities who rebuilt Britain. NO DOGS explores the shared and contrasting experiences of Jamaican and Irish immigrants to the UK, in a story inspired by community interviews that explores what it means to be British and asks: once we’ve left one home, how long does it take to truly find another?
