Black Dog and Christina lived together in a little cottage on the edge of a forest. They had been friends for a very long time, they played together, they swam together, they ran barefoot through the forest. Then, suddenly, one cold day in winter, everything began to change…

Even the very young know the pain of love. In this hauntingly beautiful story we share Black Dog’s pain as he waits and waits for the return of Christina’s love.

In the Spring, they ran together over the hills. In the Summer, they swam together in the river. In the Autumn, they played together in the fallen leaves. As it got cooler they collected sticks for the fire that would keep them warm during the long winter months.

For all ages from 2 years to 100 years old and their companions.



Relax this July School Holidays with Little Dog Barking children’s puppet show Black Dog!

10am Thursday 19th July

Circa Theatre prides itself on being a non-for-profit organization focused on creating high quality theatre accessible to all members of the community. We are pleased to announce that on Thursday 19th July at 10am we will be staging a relaxed performance of Black Dog! This is a performance designed with the needs of children and young adults who will benefit from a more relaxed environment including people with an Autism Spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders or learning difficulties. There will also be a relaxed tour at Te Papa at 9am before the museum opens to the public. Tour Free of Charge.

The house lights will be kept on, we will have a smaller audience and audience participation is most welcome. If it does become a little too much we will have a chill out space where you can go and sit quietly. We will also be sending out an information pack with images of the theatre, the actors and a list of plot points so everyone is prepared for the performance.

Tickets are $10.  If you have any questions, please email: access@circa.co.nz
