COMMENTS:

This play follows in the thread of absurdity. It tells a very simple story of girl meets boy, boy tries to marry girl, boy becomes frustrated with family, boy leaves, girl is married to a man in a mask who is actually a dog, boy fights for girl, boy wins, boy marries girl. Simple right! But I loved watching this play because it was different. It's not everyday that you see an absurdist play done well. I was enthused by the shadow puppetry which was incorporated into the plot of the show. Absurdist theatre is not for everyone, but if your looking for something unique and diiferent than check out BEWARE OF DOG.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

None. But still a great performance.
