Kevin Melendez
Kevin Melendez will star as Ivan Mishukov in Origin Theatre Company's American premiere of Hattie Naylor's Ivan and the Dogs at The Players Loft Theatre, May 5-28. David Sullivan will direct.

The play tells the true story of a four-year-old Moscow runaway's life underground with a pack of dogs. But as relived by the protagonist as a young man, Ivan and the Dogs unfolds like a fairytale in which the human world lacks humanity and the animal world has it in abundance.

Originally produced as a radio play for Radio 4 in England, Ivan and the Dogs was nominated for a 2011 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.
