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?
good dog ? set during the early noughties ? tells the story of growing up in a multicultural
community, and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control. Go back in time and experience the 2000?s through the eyes of Mrs Blackwood, waiting for the day her husband notices her, or Old Man Boateng waiting for the day he gets bored of drinking.
Delicately observed and fearlessly told by the star of Netflix?s Crazyhead, BBC 1?s Eastenders and Channel 4?s Youngers, Arinzé Kene returns to writing for theatre for the first time since God?s Property in 2013.
Come with your family, friends or on your own. good dog is entertaining and thought-provoking with a little something for everyone. Whether you?re looking for a night out with your mates or a way to broaden your horizons, good dog is for you.
