DOG HAIR is a new 3-hander written by Welsh working-class writer Phillip Jones. The play explores with humour & warmth the relationship between a mother (MAM) & son (SON) in the small industrial town they've been shaped by, dealing with loss & acceptance whilst feeling isolated, trapped and separate from the home they’re in. We see these characters with un-stereotyped working-class charm, bite & tenderness. DOG HAIR is supported in development by Arts Council England, Pleasance Theatre and RECLAIM Project
