Book Description

*Winner of the 1989/90 Tonight/AA Life Vita Award for Comedy in Theatre*

An award-winning South African theatre play, written at the height of Apartheid.

The play takes place in a police dog training facility. The characters themselves are dogs - played by actors padding around on all fours. The story unfolds as we discover the group dynamics of a bunch of very jaundiced, somewhat depressed dogs, beginning to wonder what their purpose is in life. The simmering discontent of the dogs existence is brought to a head with the arrival of Rex, a domestic civilian dog with radically different ideas.

A dog's Godot begins to play out in the kennel...

"The play is brilliant."(Weekly Mail) "A very fine, thoughtful piece of writing that
has both a message and is very very funny." (The Star)

It has been staged repeatedly since its first production - most recently at Brown University.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ian Fraser is a multi-award winning playwright and author. He grew up in South Africa. Penguin Books published his autobiography, dealing with his experiences in the army under Apartheid. His work was nominated for and gradually won most of the South African theatre awards. For a decade, both his solo comedy and dramatic works won awards and broke box office records at the Grahamstown Festival, Africa’s largest Arts Festival.
He relocated to the USA in 2006. Since arriving, his work has been staged in Wisconsin, Florida, Scotland (in the UK), and in 2009, by Brown University.
