dog eat dog

  • five actors on the stage of an exploding set

Nominated for Jessie Award: Outstanding Production, Small Theatre

dog eat dog featured five true stories inspired by recent news reports. The Only Animal is on the hunt for survival tactics: tracking a refugee from Hurricane Katrina, a Sasquatch stalker, an unlikely escape artist, a feral grocery clerk, and the woman who holds the world record in grilled cheese consumption. Truth is there, somewhere in the cultural-Cusinart of song-lyrics, CBC, natural disasters urban myths, prison art, roadside attractions, and competitive eating contests. Come with us as we take narratives to the nth degree to find out what it means to stay human in a world gone to the dogs.
