What Is It?

The new play by Richard Zajdlic, one of the writers of hit TV drama This Life, directed by Mike Bradwell, about love turning sour when two thirtysomething ex-lovers wrangle over their old flat.

Who's In It?

Tony Curran, following on from a string of Mr Nasty roles, is menacing as ex-boyfriend Neil, while Raquel Cassidy is supremely self-composed as his former partner, Alex.

What They Say About It

"The twisty, soapy plot sets ups a series of increasingly contrived confrontations," David Benedict, The Independent.

"There must be something right with a play that sends you out at half- time wishing you could grab a main character and push him out of a window," Benedict Nightingale, The Times.

"You leave the evening feeling wrung out yet curiously elated by encountering such bracing talent," Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph.

"The strength of Dogs Barking lies in its cattiness, as one character winds up another," Robert Butler, The Independent on Sunday.
