About The Dog Walker

Herbert is a professional dog walker who reflects upon the different characters he meets while on his daily strolls. But, as he meets Keri, a woman living alone who is surrounded by empty alcohol bottles, he wonders where her Pekinese dog is kept.

The Dog Walker is the latest play by Paul Minx, whose previous works include See How Beautiful I Am, The Long Road South and Walking on Water.

Shows at Jermyn Street Theatre

The Dog Walker will be performed as part of the current season at Jermyn Street Theatre, with other shows including a new adaptation of The Tempest, a revival of Alan Ayckbourn's Relatively Speaking and Gertrude Stein's The Marriage of Alice B Toklas.
