★★★ ★ Theatrically watertight… character comedy, social satire and moral debate.”  The Stage

★★★★ “At once bleak and hopeful, innocent and cynical, dark and light. The result is nothing short of brilliance.” Fest

★★★★ “A funny yet touching play about friendship that finds not just the comedy in the apocalypse, but the positivity.” The List

★★★★ “Rich with music, gallows humour and existential debate on the merits of humanity.” ThreeWeeks


The rain has finally stopped. 4 people survive. They are in a swan pedalo.

Following critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Festival, HighTide and the Arcola, DugOut Theatre – the company that bought you Inheritance Blues and The Sunset Five –  bring their smash-hit show to Leeds to ask what we’d remember if we could start again.

Founded by a group of comedians, writers, musicians and actors, DugOut’s work is often funny, sometimes sad, usually hopeful and always musical. It warms your heart, moves your feet, treats your eyes, lightens your load, tickles your fancy and swells your heart.

Taking our joyful, popular plays around the country, we perform in a range of intimate spaces – from studio theatres to country pubs – and believe in bringing our unique brand of theatre magic to audiences everywhere.

‘An exciting and creative company.’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘Oozing with simple British charm’ **** (Daily Mail). ‘A lot of fun’ **** (Scotsman). ‘Brilliant acting’ ***** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Full of vim and great music’ (Lyn Gardner, Guardian). ****
