Reviews / Awards

“4.5 Stars… A savage beauty… Dogmeat is as moving as it is horrifying.”
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

“It’s darkly comic, ugly, cynical, anarchic, violent, sexually-charged and in-your-face. I had the thrilling and quintessentially theatrical experience of being on the edge of my seat, continually not knowing what was going to happen next.”
