“Love is like…wild dogs. If it hunts you down, it will not let you go.”
From WILD DOGS


“It is not often that a script comes across my desk that excites me so much. It is one of the most daring and original texts I’ve seen in some time. So much theatricality and an array of brilliant characters told with naked gusto. Arrestingly honest with a profound message about love and our need to belong.”
Artistic Director, Kelly Thornton
