This is NOT About My Dead Dog
Playwrights Local proudly announces “This is NOT About My Dead Dog,” a new one-person show written and performed by Amy Schwabauer. In this world premiere production, the Cleveland-based Schwabauer combines reflections on love, sex, and alcohol with loud-out-loud stories from an awkward girlhood. Tackling German shepherds, boyfriends, and other attachments, the writer/performer takes the audience through her journey from lonely child to young partier to (relatively) well-adjusted adult. “This is NOT About My Dead Dog” is part pain journal and part offbeat rumination on aquatic life. It is heartbreaking, but always bracingly honest and funny. Featuring direction by Dale Heinen, performances run January 13 through 28 at the Creative Space at Waterloo Arts.
