JILL PARKER uncertified reviewer June 06, 2015
I loved this play. Beautiful concepts portrayed in beautifully creative ways. As an audience member, I was invited into a touching and thought provoking world that reflected the various perceptions of the characters that lived within it. The play has a clever humor to it, and raises questions about love, life, family, time, purpose and loss. The play was well put together and professionally executed. Staging, lighting, and prop use were exceptionally creative. Well done. Go see Dead Dog's Bone!... full review

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.... full review

OMFG! I loved the play!! It was brilliant, stunningly inventive, and moving. I told my wife as we were leaving the play -- without really knowing in detail what I meant -- "I think this is the future of theater". Playwright Veronica Tijoe’s theatrical voice-vison and her expressive palette are sooo unique!! I was moved to tears (my highest compliment in a play) when Juniper’s boyfriend compared her to the city of Berlin. To understand, see the play. And Dog's last words were perfectly loving, as only a dog's (or perhaps a saint’s) could be. The actors, the staging and the directing were all great. The pace was brisk and "taxing", in exactly the way I want to be taxed in theatre. I can't wait to see Veronica Tijoe’s next pla... full review

Brilliantly directed, Dead Dog's Bone's gifted cast takes its audience on a wonderful journey through life's ever-changing twists and turns. Centered around the family dog, Dead Dog's Bone offers a window into one family's relationship over time, while masterfully guiding its audience into the dusty recesses of their own memories and past. Dead Dog's Bone touches on the ongoing internal struggle that we all face about change and the poignant reality that life isn't static. This thought provoking play is filled with heartwarming moments which beckon us all back to days long gone, while reminding us of the fluidity of life. -A must see! ... full review
