Had me clutching various organs for fear they’d pop out of me with all the laughter.

BBC Comedy (on a previous script by Tom Glover)

One Hollywood studio, one major action picture, one starring role, two dogs. A new comic play from BBC sitcom competition finalist Tom Glover.

When Hollywood’s hottest C-list celebrity walks off set as shooting is about to start on what could have been the action movie of the century, a desperate producer decides to cast a dog as his star. Some hasty re-writes and a canine casting session later, two talented action-hero pooches are in the running for the lead-role and must compete for it on camera.

Which dog will get the bone? Can true love win the day? Will the owner-trainers make sausage meat of one another? And will the movie ever be finished on time? There are no real dogs in this show but two very, very talented imaginary ones.

Tom Glover currently has Mother Dearest in development with the National Theatre and he was a finalist on the BBC's All Mixed Up Sitcom competition with Human, Right?

Three actors take on multiple-roles in this fast-paced, satirical canine comedy caper. Tom Glover will perform in the show alongside Richard David-Caine and Zoe Gardner. Richard is one quarter of acclaimed sketch comedy group Four Screws Loose and was also recently seen in the Olivier-nominated West End production of Potted Panto. Zoe’s recent TV credits include We Are Mongrels (BBC) and Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show 2 and 3 (ITV2). Zoe is one half of comedy team The Congress of Oddities who have made numerous acclaimed live shows and a TV pilot for Celador Productions (The Odditorium). Her recent theatre credits include Colin Hoult - Enemy of the World (Edinburgh 2010); Coffee; and Carnival of Monsters (Edinburgh 2009).

Director Katherine Hare’s recent credits as a director include Edges (Landor Theatre); Crazy for You (London Palladium); The Tender Land (Upstairs at The Gatehouse and Arcola); associate direction on Dirty White Boy (Trafalgar Studios); Hit Me! The Life and Rhymes of Ian Dury (Edinburgh 2010, Garrick Theatre and national tour); and resident direction on Naked Boys Singing (Arts Theatre, Kings Head and Charing Cross Theatres).
