Initially established in 1982 as an offshoot of The Gate, Theatre 503 is a stalwart of the London fringe that enjoyed a dazzling moment in the spotlight when its 2009 premiere production of Kaitori Hall's 'The Mountaintop' transferred to the West End and beat Jez Butterworth 'Jerusalem' to the Best New Play Olivier. Clearly that's not an annual occurance, but the theatre is serious about its new writing and pumps out a steady stream of productions that are indubitably worth a look if you want to check out the stars of tomorrow.
It sits about the Latchmere Pub, a spacious, agreeable boozer that recently had a gastro makeover.

This play is not only very funny it is also very moving. It has hidden depths and is multi layered . The four characters are beautifully fleshed out and each character has a journey within the play. Dog Days is unpredictable and never boring. The young couple, the suited and booted Tony, and Hayley all height and eyeliner are a strong contrast to the older couple of John and Cate. Optmism and youth square up to age and maturity when the tussle of the house selling process begins. What seems a straightforward sale is far from that...and this hilarious romps leads the audience into the dark waters of love loss and real estate. This is theatre at its best...entertaining relevant ...laugh out loud. It is so funny and witty..I defy anybody not to laugh.
