Thursday November 18th @ 7:30 pm, doors at 7 pmHolly Hughes: The Dog & Pony Show

"The Dog and Pony Show (Bring Your Own Pony)" is a new solo performance written and performed by 2010 Guggenheim Fellow, Holly Hughes and directed by Dan Hurlin.  A blend of autobiography, animal behavior, and bald faced lies, the show is a comic/poetic meditation on a midlife crisis in the key of canine.  After several years as a self-described "professional homosexual" spent preaching to the perverted and getting into the craw of the religious right, Hughes disbands her one (wo)man dog and pony show, takes a real job at a prestigious university, acquiring a small pack of dogs, and must ask herself" what is sound of one lesbian clapping? (Could it be barking?)
