Fowl Swine Productions presents
Heart of a Dog - The Musical

22 May 2014 to 24 May 2014

On the white and pristine pages of Moscow winter snow, a dark story unfolds…

Dr Philip Preobrazhensky lives a privileged life in revolutionary Moscow, thanks to his internationally celebrated skills in reproductive surgery and his Party elite patients. But a brutal experiment on a scampish stray dog, Sharik, brings chaos to the doctor's ordered life and threatens to destroy his professional reputation and avowed bachelorhood.

Jim McGrath is a Canberra-based playwright who developed Heart of a Dog with the support of The Street Theatre's HIVE program. Inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov’s novella of the same name, Heart of a Dog dissects definitions of masculinity in an evolving society. 

Now some of Canberra's favourite actors and musicians have been stitched together to bring this Frankenstein meets My Fair Lady monster of a farce to life.

"Congratulations on writing such a clever and funny piece." PAUL CAPSIS

"The work that Jim has created is exciting in its ideas, thrilling in its potential and hilarious in its realisation." PETER MATHESON
