    Comedic chaos as Moscow dog becomes a Soviet revolutionary.

    Written by Cambridge Footlight Miles Hitchens, and sponsored by CUADC, this is a black comedy based on Mikhail Bulgakov’s novella of the same name. On a cold Moscow night in 1925, a stray dog is lured to a professor’s laboratory, where his endocrine system is replaced with that of a recently deceased man. As the dog morphs into an increasingly human creature, the once-esteemed professor's life is overthrown and rampaged. The creature's revolutionary values infiltrate the professor's belief in order and tradition; his flat becomes a bourgeois stronghold, encroached not only from the outside by the red workers' party, but also from within by his own pet dog. 'Heart of a Dog' brings a cult literary farce to the London stage!
