"Scavengers ain’t got no appreciation of culture." - Zetta
While the live-performance season is on hold nationwide, The Seeing Place (TSP) continues to produce great plays by distinguished playwrights online. Throughout our global pandemic we’ve come to realize that storytelling, about the past, present and future, are more important than ever. Enter Liz Duffy Adams irreverent post-apocalyptic play DOG ACT.
The play follows the adventures of Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog (a young man undergoing a “voluntary species demotion”) as they wander through the former northeastern United States. Zetta, Dog and their little troupe are on their way to a gig in China, assuming they can find it...and survive the journey. DOG ACT is a theatrical, darkly comic variation on the classic doomsday genre, with five original songs.
DOG ACT features TSP veterans Erin Cronican, Robin Friend, William Ketter, Jon L Peacock, Hailey Vest, Brandon Walker (who appeared in one of the first ever productions of the play in 2005), and Weronika Helena Wozniak. It is directed by Erin Cronican, with stage management by Shannon Formas.
100% of the proceeds for DOG ACT are being donated to the Food Pantry at St Clement’s NYC: A congregation that has always celebrated the ministry of women, of gay and lesbian people, and those of all walks of life; a longtime center of service to the poor, celebrating social activism and creative liturgy - one of the most diverse Episcopal parishes in New York City. St Clement's has operated a food pantry since 1986, one of its primary means of outreach.
DOG ACT will be performed live via Zoom
January 30, 2021 and February 5, 2021 at 7pm EASTERN TIME.
