good dog: what they said

Last week, we opened good dog at Watford Palace Theatre. We welcomed back old audiences and regular visitors to the theatre, as well as humbling visits from various communities in Watford (some of them first time visitors to the theatre) and a wonderful bunch of students from the Princes Trust. 

We’re now nearing the end of our second week of the national tour and what a week it’s been – with Storm Doris shaking us all up yesterday, the resilient and brilliant squad have made it through another week. In honour of the team, we thought we’d do a flashback to all of the brilliant reviews, tweets and audience reactions we received throughout last week. Thank you to all of those who came to the show in the past two weeks, and if you have yet to make it, we’ll see you on the road at one of our tour venues.
