good dog

Following its acclaimed premiere in spring 2017, good dog by Arinzé Kene prepares to embark on its second national tour from January 2019. Directed by tiata fahodzi’s artistic director Natalie Ibu, good dog is a true epic spanning multiple characters, families and years.

Mum’s promised him that bike so even when school or homelife bites, he knows to keep his chin up, his head down and his shirt clean. No harsh word, no sudden push to the ground will distract him from growing up to be a good man. Because in the end, everyone who’s good gets what they deserve. Don’t they?

Set during the early noughties, good dog tells the story of growing up in a multi-cultural community, and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control. When prejudiced voices are amplified, the arts must remind us of the humans obscured within the propaganda storm.
