Peter O'Toole stars in this surreal period comedic tale of canine reincarnation which explores the relationships between father and son and master and dog.


The mystical comedy-drama Dean Spanley is adapted from Lord Dunsany's popular novella My Talks with Dean Spanley. Horatio Fisk (O'Toole) is an irascible, cantankerous septuagenarian living out his final days at the turn of the 20th century. Despite his distant and slightly strained relationship with his son Henslowe (Jeremy Northam), Horatio still joins the young man on regular outings. The two decide to attend a lecture on the Transmigration of Souls by a visiting Hindu Swami. At the meeting, their paths intersect with the new local clergyman Dean Spanley (Sam Neill), and a friendship blossoms between Spanley and Henlowe.

As their friendship grows Spanley reveals stories about his prior life lived out as a canine - and his recollections hold a rather bizarre connection to Horatio's familial past.

The majority of Dean Spanley was filmed in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

We recommend you bring a cushion to sit on for this performance. Refreshments will be available before the performance and during the interval.

"A charming, unique film, well crafted and boasting some great performances, notably from the spry Peter O'Toole. "
Daniel Etherington, Film4
