This well-loved childrens’ book by the best-selling team of Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre comes to the stage in this unique, hands-on collaboration between the authors and the award-winning theatre company The Foundry Group in association with acclaimed children’s company Bard & Troubadour. With songs by Brian Mitchell (composer of The Ministry of Biscuits, co-written with Philip Reeve), a cast including Bard & Troubadour’s Amy Sutton and Joshua Crisp, designs by Reeve and McIntyre themselves, and a chance for younger audience members to play the eponymous, yipping sleigh dogs, Pugs of The Frozen North promises fun and excitement for all the family.

Presented by The Foundry Group (Winners: Argus Angel for Artistic Excellence 2014 / Best Fringe Show, Chris Neville Awards 2013 / Best Actress Brighton Festival 2013 / Best Theatre Buxton Fringe 2011 / Best Actor Brighton Festival 2011 / FringeGuru Editor’s Choice 2011)

In association with Bard & Troubadour
