Play by Liz Duffy Adams

This post-apocalyptic vaudeville follows Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog, a young man undergoing a voluntary species demotion, as they walk through the wilderness of the former Northeast U.S. with their little troupe. They are heading toward a gig in China, if they can find it and survive the trip. 

A provocative and rollicking look at what might be next. 

“Culture is a mutable, imperiled and hilariously vigorous thing in the post-apocalyptic world of Liz Duffy Adams’ Dog Act.… It’s a bright dystopian blend of pop and high culture…” ~Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Play by William Shakespeare

True love. Puppy love. First love. Unrequited love. Love at first sight.

How do these happen to us, and why? Mortals from all walks of life engage with the Fairy Kingdom in a hilarious confection of poetic beauty and comic twists in one of the most joyful plots on the foolish attempts to control and contort love.

Mortals from all walks of life engage with the Fairy Kingdom in a hilarious confection of poetic beauty and comic twist. Oberon and Titania, the “rude mechanicals,” the four young lovers, and Athenian royalty all struggle with this thing called love, to the great amusement of Puck, who famously declares “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
