Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship. But Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone.  Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on an adventure through a dog’s eyes, sensitively exploring loss, friendship and new beginnings.

The multi-award winning makers of The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik return with a moving tale of loss and new hope.

Watts and Gray’s storytelling art is deceptively simple but executed with considerable sophistication… New Owner sits perfectly in the timeless tradition of storytelling for children, and the child in all of us.”  The West Australian
