Janet Suzman stars in the UK premiere of an acclaimed new South African play by the award-winning Craig Higginson.

Patricia and Richard Wiley, an elderly white couple, are packing up to leave the farm they've sold to developers. Their preparations are interrupted by the arrival of a young man - 'Look Smart' - who used to be one of the black workers on their estate until he disappeared fifteen years ago. The day before 'Look Smart' left, something terrible happened on the Wileys' farm. But everyone has a different memory of the dreadful event and their own role in it. As the different accounts of their shared past are unravelled, they are all forced to confront their own versions of the truth - with shocking ramifications for their lives today.

Dream of the Dog is a richly textured and complex story of South Africa's emerging democracy, and its continued negotiation with its past in order to find a workable identity for its future. Critically acclaimed in South Africa, this new play takes an unflinching look at the twin mantras of the post-Mandela age - reconciliation and forgiveness - as it asks whether black and white can ever live together peacefully.
