Last Orders At The Dog & Dumplings

Last Orders At The Dog & Dumplings

13th December 2017


Boogaloo Stu’s new comedy musical is an uproarious and merciless exposé of the
cold-blooded takeover striking our communities in the name of regeneration.

Written, Devised and Performed by Boogaloo Stu and Flick Ferdinando

“Deadly serious content, delivered with inspired silliness and irreverence, packaged up in a carefully constructed theatrical context that continuously works to blur the lines of convention between audience and performance. Clever, funny, unmissable stuff.” - Mimi Banks, co-director Home Live Art

With pubs being shuttered at an alarming rate, gentrification continues apace; and it would seem that our communities, both urban and rural, are being hollowed out and left for dead by developers driven by greed.

Faced with imminent closure, publicans Kevin and Babs Chisholm from the Dog & Dumplings take on the big boys, in this musical tale of a busy boozer doing battle with dodgy developers. As the wrecking ball swings ever closer, could Kev and Babs end up under cling film in their own Meat Raffle, or will they make mincemeat of the developers?

Performed by Boogaloo Stu and Flick Ferdinando, Last Orders At The Dog & Dumplings is a riotous kneesup showcasing new writing, character comedy and original music, all the while underlining the serious risks faced by our beloved British pub culture.

Comments about the show from social media, following recent preview shows:

“So enjoyed last night. It’s such a sad time for British pubs. I’ll go and support my local today.”

“Political, in a hilarious & slightly surreal way.”

“It was great! Inspired by the show, we continued on to a pub crawl of our locals.”

“Brilliant, funny, ridiculous and a great show.”

“I loved it. It's the Dog’s Dumplings!”

“Completely brilliant - have not laughed that much in years!”
