Dog Act

By Liz Duffy Adams

Directed by Christina Traister


This capstone thesis production featuring the 2018 MFA Acting candidates follows the traveling performer Zetta Stone and her companion Dog and her diverse theatre troupe in this post-apocalyptic vaudeville as they journey through the wilderness of the former Northeast U.S., heading toward a gig in China. Will they find it? Will their voices be heard? Will they survive the journey?
