Directed by Nancy Palk (her first effort) and starrring Fiona Reid as Lomia, Joseph Ziegler as Glidden, Gregory Prest as Pascal, Mike Ross as Cape and Michaela Washburn as Pony, thisplay by Judith Thompson can easily be described as wierd.
Most of the audience stayed to the end, but I have heard some people describe it as the worst thing they have ever seen. I would not go that far – in fact in many ways I enjoyed it and found the characters interesting, if bizarre. The direction was sound, the acting solid, so any discomfort does have to come back to the play itself.
Superficially, it is about love and relationships and how far will you go to save someone you love, or to save yourself. The dog never appears, but has a starring role.
Depression and the black dog are the enemy of the white biting dog.
