“The whole damn world might change tomorrow
So we go for broke today”

November 21, 1963. On the night before their deployment to Vietnam, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, the unassuming and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet, she rewrites the rules of the game and opens his eyes to what really matters in life.

Based on the 1991 movie of the same name starring River Phoenix, Dogfight premièred Off-Broadway in 2012, when it won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and was nominated for 5 Outer Critics Circle and 2 Drama Desk Awards.

“Easily the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening” Time Out New York

Extra midweek matinee added due to popular demand on Tuesday 9 September at 2.30pm!

Please note that this production is recommended for those aged 11+. PAYG memberships cannot be used for the final week of performances. There is smoking and strobe lighting throughout the performance.
