I had to read Dog Lady for my theatre class and I'm neither disappointed or impressed. It's just kinda there. It's an interesting idea, much like the Shaggy DA so to speak, but I think it would have been more interesting if the end of the play had been more climatic. I felt like through out the play, the tension was building for something major and huge to happen, and then it just went flat and ended, leaving me scratching my head and thinking "Is this really the end? It can't be!" All in all, it wasn't a great read, but it wasn't terrible either.
Dog Lady is awful. NOTHING HAPPENS. There is no conflict. It's about a bunch of people helping each other....I hate this play I chose to eat it vomit it back up and feed it to my dog...ironic
