My overall impression

Dead Dog’s Bone is such a great play. The actors are wonderful, with Julia Finch’s Virgin Mary adding both a great narrative drive and empathic commentary, and Luke Medina’s Dog stealing the show. (It’s hard not to really love the dog who is dying. And Luke’s understated delivery makes us love him even more.) It’s a family drama, with Hailey McAfee, Sean Draper, Gigi Greene, and Conor Murphy all sharing moments of doubt and love and hope – and trying to figure out how we love and lose all at the same time. Rosie Glen-Lambert’s direction is spot on – and I particularly loved the skipping stones. I especially loved discovering Veronica Tjioe’s play.
