Here is a sneak peek at the Mercury Theatre Wynnum 2020 program.

Auditions Open

                                                               A DOG’S LIFE

This is a one act play which mixes comedy with drama so beautifully you’ll be laughing with little tears in your eyes. Pam Valentine has written about four very different dogs in a pound mostly hoping to be adopted by a human. All except for old Ben who has lived on the streets all his life. He is just waiting for his master to come and get him. You will love the characters and the story.

Director – Terry Grant (Ph 0428740086)

SYNOPSIS: Three of the four dogs in an animal shelter wait for a loving human to adopt them – all except Ben who waits for his master. The dogs are very human in that they feel loneliness, anger and frustration. They all have memories of their past lives - both good and bad, but have very different backgrounds. Feelings come to the fore when a human finally arrives to adopt a dog.

The play runs for about 40 minutes and could be described as a tragic comedy. It will be performed in the round. The actors playing the part of dogs need to be able to sit or lie on the floor for the duration of the show. The human parts are small walk ons.

CAST:

                Ben – (Male) a battered old mongrel.

                Fritz – (male) a German Shepherd. Tough and rough.

                Fifi- (Female) an overweight poodle with a slight French accent.
