By Lee Blessing
Directed by Robert Bradley, Starring Noah Karrasch

In this seriously funny romp, the provocative work of one edgy performance artist comes up against a conservative politician running for the senate. The senator has a lovable dog; a charming, folksy manner; and a campaign to cut “frivolous arts spending.” The artist has a plan for one final shocking performance with his NEA funding – kidnapping the dog and making it loyal to him. Lee Blessing explores the mysterious connections between dogs and their humans, politics and artists, and miraculous wonder in our lives. Springfield Area Premiere. Contains adult language and content.
