Seeing Place Theater is celebrating its 10++ Season, with The Body Politic, stories that expose the fight for autonomy. Their first show of the year is Liz Duffy Adams’ irreverent post-apocalyptic play Dog Act.
Dog Act 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. This darkly comic variation on the classic doomsday genre, has five original songs.
The show is produced fully on zoom, complete with costumes, sets, and sound design. It stars members of their illustrious ensemble comprised of actors from the BIPOC, disabled, LGTBQIA, and immigrant communities, and 75% are women or non-binary.

“It seems all-too appropriate to be presenting a play about post-apocalyptic adventures, given our current health and political upheaval that we’re experiencing in the United States,” says director Erin Cronican. “This play asks us to reflect on how we manage our pain and loss, how we forge alliances in times of strife, and the importance of storytelling to bring us all together.”
