Dog Tag

Dog Tag

(with Matthew A. Everett) 3 people. 10 minutes. Ed is out walking his dog Percy, when he runs into ex-lover Paul. Percy may prove an effective go-between for a reconciliation, or the two men may still end up going home alone. A play of second chances, some taken, some not.

Matthew and Anne accomplish something far more subversive to anti-gay thought in these two plays by presenting the main characters as people who are completely normal. Everyone, no matter their sexual orientation, wants someone to love, wants to heal, wants to be attractive to someone, wants to have someone to care for…Was a talking dog realistic, no? Were the feelings and actions of all those on stage completely consistent with what makes us human and what makes that humanity beautiful? Yes.
