New Shows in Development

We are thrilled to announce that we will be working with SVA  (Stroud Valleys Artspace) to bring the award winning Australian play ‘When the Rain Stops Falling‘ by Andrew Bovell to The Goods Shed in Stroud for a 3 week performance run in Autumn 2016.

The Goods Shed is a beautiful space located next door to the railway station in Stroud. Designed and built by Brunel it is atmospheric and grand in scale and will make the perfect home for what will be a stunning immersive piece of theatre as well as art installation.

Over the coming months we will bring you news of how  you can be involved in this production, and hope that you will join us in making this a very special theatrical event.



Other Recent Work

Last year saw the company devising an interactive performance piece around Victorian Literature as a commission for The Everyman Theatre, touring throughout Gloucestershire.



Formed in 2005, Red Dog quickly established a reputation for producing original, vivid, and highly imaginative text driven stories that are deeply engaging emotionally and intellectually. We are an ensemble company with a core group of associate artists, including textile and video artists, under the creative direction of Kate Abraham, the company’s founder.

The Red Dog style is modern and bold with the majority of our chosen works being award-winning plays by contemporary playwrights. We produce our shows in the round giving our audiences an up close and personal experience. This allows us to focus on the richness of the text, with original costume design playing a fundamental part. By working collaboratively and imaginatively with textile designers we seek to create bold and striking visual images that blur the lines between visual art and theatre. Our stripped back productions explore the human condition in a variety of contexts with themes that resonate powerfully with today’s audiences.

The company is based in Stroud, with connections in Brittany in France and with strong connections with The Everyman Theatre Cheltenham




“rich and dense, but never less than compelling….proper grown up theatre”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian


Our theatre shows for younger audiences are original pieces written and devised by the company, that celebrate story telling in a magical and intimate way, using live music, in-the-round performance and a gently interactive style.
