Thought provoking, funny, and often poignant, this production is not to be missed! The performance of Greg Matthew Anderson and direction of Shawn Douglas are nothing short of amazing and the play itself first class writing.

Description

By Lee Blessing

Directed by Shawn Douglass

Featuring Artistic Associate Greg Matthew Anderson

Controversial performance artist Kerr has his NEA funding threatened in a calculated, political trick by his hometown candidate, the folksy, dog-toting Therm Pooley. For revenge, Kerr attempts a dog-napping to reveal that the Senator has the public on a leash. But the Universe exacts its own fantastical revenge on Kerr. Fate, along with the help of some good belly rubs, compels Kerr to sit and stay closer to the Senator than he ever could have imagined. Blessing celebrates the inner life of our canine companions and spots the artist-activist in us all.
