GOOD Dog by former EastEnders and Youngers star Arinzé Kene is heading to Salisbury Playhouse next month.

It is in the Salberg from March 14-16 following its acclaimed premiere in spring 2017.

Directed by Tiata Fahodzi’s artistic director Natalie Ibu, Good Dog is a story spanning multiple characters, families and years.

Set during the early noughties, Good Dog tells the story of growing up in a multi-cultural community, and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control.

When prejudiced voices are amplified, the arts must remind us of the humans obscured within the propaganda storm.

The inspiration for Kene’s play stemmed from a desire to imagine what drove his friends and community to riot in the summer of 2011 – in London and beyond – but it has become a chronicle of a community struggling to survive and fighting back.

Natalie Ibu said: “It’s a real thrill to be able to bring back Arinzé’s play - an astonishing love letter to the people and places that leave their mark on your life - and tour it to more places, meeting more people.

“In the wake of the Brexit vote, it was a troubling thesis about what happens when you are unseen and unheard, and this only gets louder as time goes on.

“At Tiata Fahodzi we pride ourselves in seeking out stories that see those who sit outside the singular narrative. We refuse to oversimplify the African diaspora and, instead, relish the complexity. We want to multiply the narratives - about ourselves and each other - and debate the mixed experience of Britain today and tomorrow.”
