The Accidental Dog Detective
'Fusion of oodles of ideas and inspiration...goes to show what can be brilliantly achieved with cardboard, scissors and a projector.' - The Skinny
Meet Harry, our hapless hero who would rather be singing than tailing hoods. When a sassy poodle walks into his office, he realised he should have listened to his instincts.
After all, it's not every wife who believes her husband is a puppet, but this is one pooch who pulls at the heartstrings of any dog. Pretty soon, Harry is sniffing out one dog's secret in a tale full of thrills, suspense, and general stupidity.
So, why not spend an amusing evening alongside evil twins and a donkey singer who once opened for Sinatra; and enjoy the experience of a hotel run by a wasp and cockroach team?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"
What people said about it
Edward Whelan - The Skinny
What on earth is going on? A crowd of people are gathered around a make shift puppet theatre to see a dog seduced by a poodle and a man who thinks he’s a puppet. "Welcome to my fourth day of being a puppeteer..." our host says, but this is not off-putting at all. The show quickly demonstrates it has the fusion of oodles of ideas and inspiration and the hasty, handmade charm that can make a first time show so original. Comedian [and now puppeteer] Paul Harry Allen is a gifted voice artist, especially when it comes to Sesame Street, while the plot is less important than the wonderfully surreal twists and turns it takes, sprinkled liberally with noir puns. The narration in some places is a little rushed, but the Dog Detective goes to show just what can be brilliantly achieved with cardboard, scissors and a projector.
