“Two different creatures - who’ve never listened to teachers -
end up side-by-side and in jail”
Can we choose who we fall in love with? Is it written in the stars? Is it a cruel joke that the Gods made up one day when it was raining?
Jezebel, is a pissed of pussy-cat with a death wish for the human race. She is caught by authorities ‘cleaning up our world’ taking-out one human at a time and hurled into captivity under the charges of crimes against humanity. On her first night she meets a stranger’s voice through a hole in the wall; Rob-Roy. He serves his time for ‘accidental’ murder - crimes of ‘passion’ - he has killed and will kill again. But in his heart of hearts he is a good Mutt. He is glad to have someone to sing to. She is glad to have someone to plan with.
Told through the eyes of a Cat and a Dog A Love Tail pokes holes in what we humans call ‘Love’ but it is probably just animal instinct.
‘A Love Tail’ is an old, familiar story of two lovers that can never be. One is a feline the other a hound, they fall into an unfortunate love…’
Spotted with peculiar rhymes and new music A Love Tail is sure to delight and intrigue even the most cynical of souls.
Devised by 2009 Toi Whakaari Acting Graduates; Aroha White, Matariki Whatarau, and Kate McGill. McGill in the role of director with White and Whatarau as Jezebel and Rob-Roy. Photograph by Gareth Moon.
