AD20140101

A witty and poignant ensemble drama following different characters in the pub on New Years Day.

Hair of the Dog is recorded 'as live', in a single take, on location in a London pub.

The resolutions aren't going so well - but what does the year hold for the relationships and the dreams for the future? We move through the bar, between characters and stories, between an old way of life and a new one. This is truly a New Years Day, with all its humour and it's sadness, its desire and its frustration - and the anticipation for a good year to come.
