BE THE DOG Begins Performances At The Robert Moss Theatre 8/26
Based on the short stories of Dave Eggers, Be the Dog celebrates and ridicules a world of complicated human relationships - through the eyes one simply exuberant dog.
As people, many of us are constantly striving for more and obsessing over what stops us from getting there, we often find ourselves forgetting to experience the joy in simplicity. We are often afraid and reluctant to jump, to take risks that could lead us to something joyful in our lives. This new work inspires us to examine the complexity in our lives and to jump no matter the costs.
