This is the story of an ordinary dog who went on an extraordinary journey into space…

Laika is a stray who’s trained up for an exciting space mission. She straps in and prepares to blast off!
Laika The Space Dog is a lively family show that retells the story of the first dog in space (with a twist)! Join Laika as she zooms through the asteroid belt, meets Space apes and returns to earth in a shower of glory.
Featuring a beautifully crafted puppet, riveting soundtrack and a few surprises, Laika the Space Dog delights ages 3+ and adults too.

Devised and Performed by Lori Hopkins
