Collective Encounters’ Youth Theatre presents:

Dog Eat Dog

A new play by Kellie Smith
Directed by Matthew Elliott

“If you perform well, then you’ll see it reflected in your pay packet”

Clara leaves school with few qualifications but manages to secure a job in a local meat factory. Clara lives with her Mum and her Granddad on a local housing estate where the gentleman callers are the kind that take away your white goods, because you haven’t kept up with pay day loan repayments. New from Liverpool writer Kellie Smith comes a Collective Encounters’ commissioned play Dog Eat Dog which exposes the challenges faced by young people growing up in poverty and surrounded by inequality, through one young woman’s political awakening. Dog Eat Dog is performed by Collective Encounters Youth Theatre.
