A Dog’s Brexit
This word ‘Brexit’, it’s really absurd.
Perhaps you’ve heard it in conversations,
On Facebook, TV or radio stations.
It sounds pretty nonsense, we don’t understand,
I can try to explain, but I might need a hand…
Quite simply. It’s British and exit as one.
British. Exit. Brexit. Done?
Maybe it’s simpler to show you a land far away,
Bowwow Town where the dogs like to play…
A Dog’s Brexit was the Little Thing’s debut show! We toured in Bristol and Bath in Summer 2018. The play explains the lead up to Britain’s exit from the EU, filled with dogs, rhyme, songs and explanations that aim to speak directly to children – plus jokes and puns fun for all the family! We stay neutral in the argument by presenting a variety of views, offering children and their families the opportunity to reflect without necessarily having to ‘pick a side’.
The dogs of Bowwow Town are all part of the BU, aka the Bowwow Union. The kennels trade and dogs move from kennel to kennel, but this luxury comes at a price… a lot of doggie-dollar and BU rules to deal with. And so the day comes when some British Bulldogs decide they want to leave the BU. In an attempt to be reelected, the Top Dog announces a BU ruf-erendum, where the British Bulldogs must vote in or out. And so the campaigns begin!
Join Barney Bulldog and his family, as they squabble and disagree about which way to vote, in a Dog-Eat-Dog world where the news and media is an unavoidable influence…
