THE STORY: Two lonely people’s lives are pushed suddenly into the unforeseen when a starving coyote shows up at their apartment building. MY BARKING DOG is a truly unpredictable, gripping exploration of isolated urban lifestyles and a daring lament for the destruction of nature by man-made boundaries.
“MY BARKING DOG…shocks and surprises, and in a most brilliant and entertaining way… poetic, funny, gripping and stomach-churning, and sometimes all these things together.” —LA Weekly. “…smart, witty, theatre of absurd-esque…a streamlined, no-fat depiction of two lonely souls possibly finding their ultimate purpose in life.” — “I only wish more American plays were this daring… by the last moments of the play, we’re in a fever dream of a world, a demented fantasy in which Nature finally has its revenge on Culture. If you think you’ve guessed what I mean, I guarantee you’re mistaken.” — “…MY BARKING DOG has plenty of bite… smart, edgy, visceral and socially relevant… funny as hell, something that few plays with a social message manage to be.” —
