“William Massolia’s smart, funny, lightly satirical stage adaptation of Canadian-bred writer Gordon Korman’s 2002 young adults novel could not be more charming.” —_"Chicago Sun-Times":http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/weiss/5300750-417/dead-dogs-has-plenty-of-bite.html _
A comedy about the horrors of school literature, No More Dead Dogs’__ __title comically points to the fact that many books for young adults often have the dog die (such as _Old Yeller _and Where the Red Fern Grows, including the book that causes the main source of all the character’s problems, Old Shep, My Pal.
The story unfolds through the eyes of Wallace Wallace (his first name is the same as his last) a teen who never lies, ever, because he is determined to be different from his lying, long-gone dad. But when Wallace gives a scathing review of his teacher’s favorite book, he winds up in detention—because sometimes telling the truth can get you into more trouble than lying.
Wallace Wallace asks the one question that all of us have been wanting to ask: Why does the dog in every classic novel have to croak at the end? This hilarious comedy comes complete with an onstage rock and roll band with original music written for the production by sound designer Rick Sims.
