A funny, quirky, heart warming musical
Desperately wanting a date for the upcoming school reunion, a socially awkward, internet loving dog washer, Delaney, embarks on a journey into the world of romantic daydreams, speed dating and online love.
Will she find what she's looking for? Or is she just doomed to live a solitary life with a house full of scrubbed canines?

Talking Mute Theatre was founded in 2012, after the idea was seeded in Adrian Hooke's and Hayley Brown's final year of study in the acting course at Toi Whakaari. ‘The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher' will be Talking Mute's debut show. With a love for comedy, music and a desire to create a new scripted work, they have together written this musical and look forward to debuting it in their October season at The Basement Theatre.
