As Geoffrey Rush’s dishevelled theatre manager once said in Shakespeare in Love, the best things in life have ‘a bit with a dog’. Case in point when it comes to our latest competition. We’ve teamed up with Soho Theatre to bring you the chance to win a pair of tickets to Victoria Melody’s Major Tom, about how one average woman and her more than averagely laid-back dog took on the world of competitive beauty. Read on to find out how to enter the competition to win a pair of tickets to your choice of the performances on 1 or 2 July at Soho Theatre.
by Victoria Melody
1 – 5 July
Major Tom is the story of how an average 34 year old became a beauty queen and how her unruly pet basset hound, Major Tom, became a championship show dog.
Major Tom and Victoria increasingly immerse themselves in the obsessive and confusing realm of personal scrutiny as they participate as genuine contestants, determined to win.
Victoria, accompanied on stage by documentary film footage and her dog, tells this true story. It explores the British fascination with celebrity, beauty and winning.
Commissioned and produced by Farnham Maltings.
