Dog House Blog, Barking Up The Stage!
For many aspiring actors appearing in a west end show like ‘The Audience’ with Oscar winning Dame Helen Mirren would be the opportunity of a lifetime. However, one actress has been sacked from the production after refusing to work with our national treasure. Lizzy the corgi, was replaced by theatre bosses just days before opening night because she would not obey Dame Helens' command. She was expected to un-leash her thespian juices but instead decided to pick bones with the director. They got a bit hot under the collar as they could not cur-tail her diva hissy fits! Mirren portrays the Queen as she meets various prime ministers over her 61year reign. Unfortunately, Lizzy ignores her and only her canine co-star Rocky has finished the scene after 16 consecutive preview performances. Maybe she was feeling a bit ruff? Theatre bosses could take no more of her obstinacy and instead appointed Coco the understudy. The doggy diva and her dis-temper was eventually sent home with her tail between her legs. Now she's at home, a resting actress, resting by the fire no doubt. Do you have selective hearing and disobey commands?
