WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dixon Place presents The Dog and Pony Show (bring your own pony), written and performed by Holly Hughes, directed by Dan Hurlin. A blend of autobiography, animal behavior and bald-faced lies, Dog and Pony is a poetic/comic meditation on the midlife crisis in the key of canine by the woman who drove Jesse Helms nuts. Or nuttier. After several years as a professional lesbian, Hughes gives up preaching to the perverted and takes a real job at a prestigious university, acquiring a small pack of dogs in the process. She discovers that as we age, the thin membrane between the animal and the human dissolves entirely. Time doesn't heal or heel, it brings new questions: "What is the sound of one lesbian clapping?"
