Boogaloo Stu's new comedy musical is an uproarious and merciless expose of the cold-blooded takeover striking our communities in the name of regeneration. Faced with imminent closure, publicans Kevin and Babs Chisholm from the Dog & Dumplings take on the big boys, in this musical tale of a busy boozer doing battle with dodgy developers. As the wrecking ball swings ever closer, could Kev and Babs end up under cling film in their own Meat Raffle, or will they make mincemeat of the developers? Performed by Boogaloo Stu and Flick Ferdinando, Last Orders At The Dog & Dumplings is a riotous knees-up showcasing new writing, character comedy and original music, all the while underlining the serious risks faced by our beloved British pub culture. With pubs being shuttered at an alarming rate, gentrification continues apace; and it would seem that our communities, both urban and rural, are being hollowed out and left for dead by developers driven by greed. For this tour (and for future dates in 2018) Boogaloo Stu will present the show in the very spaces which find themselves at risk – in pubs, bars and clubs around the country.
