DARING DOG MONOLOGUES

6 HUMAN TAILS OF BEAUTY, BRAVERY & BARKING MADNESS
A dog flies breathlessly all the way to the moon. A woman-dog dreams first of love, then revenge. A dogless man reveals a secret talent. We went digging in a local garden bed, a Russian spaceship and a suburban bedroom or two, and these are the juicy treasures we turned up. Quick, share them with us, before the sun goes down, before we lose our bravado and just start burying them all. 60 minutes

Penned by a collection of daring Writers
Performed by an ensemble of determined Actors
Directed by the defiant Elizabeth Walley
Proudly presented by Melbourne Writers’ Theatre

Created for Melbourne Fringe 2019
