Alone in her shabby bedsit, a faded and forgotten Britannia sits, singing grief and lost glory.


Moving through a world of shadows from Arthurian myth to Brexit malaise, this mesmeric mix of theatre and song cycle explores imperial nostalgia, war memorialisation and the impossible longing for a lost golden age. Looped madrigals and cabaret cantatas mix with violin odes to evoke the fractured rituals of a magpie past.


A genre-defying piece at once both astute and absurd, Gone to the Dogs is a show about isolation and lost identity - both of self and nation; of the tyranny of memory and the fear of irrelevancy.


With support from according-wielding cabaret poet Helen Rice.
