Ugg ‘n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg – is taking place at Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham, on 31 May 2022 at 2.30pm.
Ugg ‘n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg – the mind-boggling tale of how two Yorkshire hunter-gatherers palled up with the wolves and saved us from doglessness. A hilarious new play for children and their families.
Thousands of years ago in the fresh, sparkling world just after the last Ice Age there were no dogs; there were wolves but we didn’t like them and they didn’t like us. But then, luckily for us, along came two young hunter-gatherers Ugg ’n’ Ogg to befriend the wolves Tooth ’n’ Nail and embark on a fun-packed adventure where despite flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, woolly mammoths, forest infernos and even a time travelling stick, they finally get to invent our best friend the dog.
A new play for children of all ages and their families inspired by the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into man’s best friend and all the dogs in the world today.
★★★★★ “Outstanding. Theatre Fideri Fidera are not Fringe favourites for nothing. Every aspect of the production is marvellous. From the acting, which is pitched perfectly to the wide-eyed wee ones; to the puppets and puppetry, which are in turn beautifully constructed and wondrously brought to life; via the story itself which is full of heart and smiles.” Daniel Lentell, Edinburgh 49, 13 Aug 2019
★★★★★ “The two actors who lead the show are family friendly without ever pandering; their little tricks with props delight the whole audience.” New Perspective, 9 Aug 2019
