The Dog and Pony Show (bring your own pony)

By Holly Hughes

Directed by Dan Hurlin

The Dog and Pony Show is a new solo performance written and performed by 2010 Guggenheim Fellow, Holly Hughes. A blend of autobiography, animal behavior, and bald faced lies, the show is a comic/poetic meditation on a midlife crisis in the key of canine. After several years as self-described “professional homosexual” spent preaching to the perverted and getting into the craw of the religious right, Hughes disbands her one (wo)man dog and pony show, takes a real job at a prestigious university, acquiring a small pack of dogs, and must ask herself: what is sound of one lesbian clapping? (Could it be barking?)
