SUMMARY

My Beautiful Black Dog by Brigitte Aphrodite is where gig meets theatre. It is a wild and poetic musical exploring the difficult contradictions and complexity of fragile minds. Brigitte Aphrodite comments that, ‘depression is at its heart but it’s not depressing – it’s joyous, funny and hopeful (I hope…). I believe in hope.’

This electrifying show challenges the urgent stigma around mental health and encourages the audience to take ownership of their own black dogs through infectious dance moves, swagger-boss costumes and banging tunes surrounded by silver streamers, sequins and sparkles. There is no-one else like Brigitte!

Below the humour and happiness, dark undertones give serious pause for reflection on the harsh reality of depression. The piece brilliantly fluctuates between an honest portrayal of this illness and its jovial antithesis.

Admission: £10.50
