Let’s Be Friends Furever

Brisbane Festival and Brisbane Powerhouse present

Let’s Be Friends Furever

16 - 25 Sept

Real dogs, real stories, unreal theatre!

World Premiere

The Good Room

The Powerhouse Theatre will be transformed into a dog park this September as besotted owners and their beloved pooches take to the stage, sharing stories of love, loyalty and laughter.

Theatre-makers The Good Room have searched Brisbane’s puppy playgrounds high and low to find local canines with barkworthy tails to tell. From an 80 kilogram dog with his own bedroom, a dogfluencer with more followers than you, and a national champion with fur to die for, hear from their companions in this hour of uplifting – and tear-jerking – theatre. Featuring video and live interviews with owners, vets and trainers, it’s the ultimutt live dogumentary for anyone who loves dogs.

From poodles to pugs, hounds to dames, it’s puppy love furever.

#Real stories

In the process of bringing real dogs and people to the stage, The Good Room conducted hundreds of hours of interviews across Australia. Here's a peek...

"Delicious festival fodder. You don’t want to miss this. It’s gorgeous theatre."

XS Entertainment on
I Want To Know What Love Is by The Good Room

"What The Good Room do is throw everything onto the floor - a vast collection of ideas and feelings and responses to real events and crowdsourced verbatim material - pour fuel over it, and set it on fire to create a spectacular event and food for thought, for a life outside the theatre that demands our burning presence."
