Ivan and the Dogs

Directed by Ellen McDougall

All the money went and there was nothing to buy food with. So Mothers and Fathers tried to find things they could get rid of, things that ate, things that drank or things that needed to be kept warm. The dogs went first.

Written by Hattie Naylor, and based on the extraordinary true story of Ivan Mishukov, Ivan and the Dogs is a spellbinding story of survival, conjuring the streets of Moscow in the 1990s through the eyes of a child.

An ATC and Soho Theatre Co-Production.
