‘I want to open my eyes, but they’re already open’

A hot August night. M finds himself at the dead end of a dark and deserted street, where everything has decayed and time has stopped. Hurled into a nightmare world, where wolves prowl, hunger is everywhere, and nothing is quite what it seems, M does the only logical thing: he runs.

His flight through this land of blood and dust, flesh-eating seductresses and talking dogs forces him to confront his very existence, and as dawn approaches M realises…This is one nightmare he may never awake from.

This darkly funny and absurd play is by critically acclaimed German playwright, Marius von Mayenburg, whose previous work includes Fireface (Royal Court 2000, Young Vic 2012) “Force, flair and poetry” - The Independent. The Ugly One (Royal Court 2007) “Coolly clever and nastily arresting” - The Guardian and The Stone (Royal Court 2009) “Mesmerising” - Evening Standard.

This production of The Dog, The Night and The Knife is the UK Premiere.
