About Ponydog Productions
Ponydog Productions is an immersive/interactive theatre company and the brainchild of Davey Seagle.
Debuting at the London Horror Festival in 2018 with their dark-comedy dystopian thriller, The Agency, Ponydog has since immigrated to Sydney where we continue to make weird, and wacky theatre.
Thank you for joining us for this show, and we hope to see you at the next one!
We have some very exciting things in the pipeline...
If we shadows have offended, mayhaps it's time to stop taking Shakespeare so seriously.
