Theatre Fideri Fidera presents
Ugg 'n' Ogg and The World's First Dogg
A very long time ago there were no dogs — there were wolves, but we didn’t like them and they didn’t like us. But then along came Ugg ’n’ Ogg to pal up with the wolves, invent our best friend, and save us all from a life of doglessness! Join our two intrepid Yorkshire hunter-gatherers as they pal up with their mortal enemies the wolves, and despite flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling sticks, and forest infernos, finally get to pat the world’s first Dogg.
Using their characteristic rich theatrical mix of physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, storytelling, and music and song, Ugg ’n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg is Theatre Fideri Fidera’s comic take on the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into all the dogs we see in the world today.
★★★★★ 'Outstanding. Theatre Fideri Fidera are not Fringe favourites for nothing. Every aspect of the production is marvellous. From the acting, which is pitched perfectly to the wide-eyed wee ones; to the puppets and puppetry, which are in turn beautifully constructed and wondrously brought to life; via the story itself which is full of heart and smiles.'

★★★★★ 'The two actors who lead the show are family friendly without ever pandering; their little tricks with props delight the whole audience. The set is extremely mobile and creates multiple changes of setting, little song interludes are peppered throughout … Theatre Fideri Fidera are a credit to children’s theatre as they keep a room full of children entertained for an hour.'
