Dogstar is delighted to be working with one of Scandinavia’s most innovative and popular independent theatre companies, Mungo Park Arts Centre of Copenhagen to bring a highly entertaining and epic adventure story to audiences – the story of the Scottish explorer Mungo Park.

In 1795 and 1805, Park led two expeditions to West Africa to chart the River Niger and investigate tales of vast gold wealth. Park died on the 2nd expedition, along with nearly all of his party. His journal survived. The play is a tragi-comic retelling of the story, with the 18th century figure of Park interacting with two young men from today.  As the story moves towards its latter stages, the folly of Park’s project, its development into an ever more crazy and violent colonial adventure is exposed. A rip-roaring entertainment and a salutary story.
