A sharp new satire by America’s hottest young writer, Sarah Sigal.
Black Hill is a small American town where being proactive and living under constant pressure is the ultimate mark of being successful. You have to be perfect at practically everything and that means defending your way of life at all costs. When a gang of village residents take issue over one family’s eight dogs, all hell breaks loose. This hilarious black comedy exposes the pettiness and hypocrisy of suburban life in America.
No one ever tells these people “no”, and who knows how many dogs they have! God bless America, but this whole thing is in poor taste.
Dogfight is directed by Jessica Beck, the young director behind 2005’s Terrorist! The Musical. and the recent Theatre 503 and Edinburgh Fringe smash hit Up The Gary performed by Andrew Barron.A new play by America’s hottest young writer, Sarah Sigal.
“This exposé of American suburban life neatly explores some of the pressures of modern day life for working mothers, their children and their husbands. The large cast is superb and really does justice to this quirky, well observed play.”
~Sarah Monaghan, Theatreworld Internet Magazine
“Sarah Sigal’s writing is witty, wry and bristling with humour…”
