About the Show
Playing in the bush, besties Niarra and Te Umuroa accidentally stumble upon the world’s last Tasmanian Tiger. How will they keep their new friend safe from harm?
Dodging hunters, these young heroes set sail across the Tasman Sea to hide the dog! But hunters aren’t the only ones on their tail. They’ll have to outwit M?ori gods and palawa spirits to save their furry friend.
Hide the Dog is a trans-Tasman creation from lutruwita/Tasmanian playwright Nathan Maynard (pakana) and Aotearoa/New Zealand writer Jamie McCaskill (M?ori). Director Isaac Drandic (Noongar) and designer Jane Hakaraia (M?ori) transform Hobart’s Theatre Royal into a magical world with elaborate costumes, projections and spectacular effects.
Intrepid young explorers will delight in this celebration of adventure, friendship and the power of culture.
Hide the Dog is a Tasmania Performs Production.
