Got your tickets yet for Mark Giesser’s stage adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s 1899 short story The Lady with a Dog, relocated to Britain during the inter-war 1920s? The production continues its world premiere season at London’s White Bear Theatre until 10 March 2018 only. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite review quotes – as well as Mates co-founder Terri Paddock’s vlog (with a dog) – below…
Damian Granville (Alan Turkington) is a banker and devoted family man with an unconventional way of taking his summer holidays: he travels alone and looks for a woman to seduce. This particular year he spots a beautiful young lady walking a white Pomeranian dog. How can he resist? He’s a skilful player and sure of success. Except young, recently married Anne Dennis (Beth Burrows) isn’t quite what he bargains for.
Turkington and Burrows are joined in the cast by Laura Glover (as Elaine Granville) and Duncan MacInnes (Carl Dennis). The Lady with a Dog is adapted and directed by Mark Giesser, with set design by Oscar Selfridge, costumes by Giulia Scrimieri and lighting by Michele Cadei. It’s presented by Alces Productions.
The Lady with a Dog runs at London’s White Bear Theatre until 10 March 2018, with performances (1 hour 40 minutes) Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm, Sunday matinees at 4pm and an extra matinee on 10 March at 3pm. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE TICKETS!

Given the play’s title, based on #Chekhov short story, this lady had to vlog with a dog. Duty vs true love in b/t the wars Britain? Slightly happier ending for hopeless romantics than #BriefEncounter.#TheLadyWithADog is @WhiteBearTheatr til 10 Mar:https://t.co/tRr1BDKsG9 pic.twitter.com/MAsbRmbz6A
