An Online Resource of Live Performance

We have been inundated with support for our online education program and are so pleased to be able to bring the joy of live performance to schools in an accessible format. While the online version of these performances can never replace the experience of being in a theatre, we understand that it’s not always possible for our audience to be able to get to a performance in person. 

Over the last year, where live performance has been out of reach for many people, and continues to be in a state of uncertainty, Slingsby by Request now offers access to three Slingsby productions, alongside three online workshop options.

Young Martin is a misfit. Bullied at school and misunderstood at home, his only comfort comes from sneaking off to the family coal shed to bond with his German Shepherds, Major and Rex. When things reach breaking point, the 13 year old runs away from his home in Limerick, Ireland, and finds himself taken in by a new family – a pack of stray dogs. As they dodge trains, steal meals and fight for survival, Martin finds himself on the road he was always meant to take.
