Dog & Pony turns 10
This fall we begin our 10th Anniversary season, and we've got some exciting projects in store for you. This winter we'll be bringing you Breach, a World Premier play about the widows of the whaling industry (not to mention one big dead whale) by Egan Reich, directed by Co-Artistic Director Krissy Vanderwarker, opening January 18, 2014. Then next summer, we'll be presenting the hotly anticipated remount of our 2008 production As Told by the Vivian Girls, our first company devised work, directed by Krissy and Co-Artistic Director Devon De Mayo. We've also got a new on-going project to announce: Winnifred Coombe: From Woombe to Toombe, a spiritual suffragist seance featuring company member Caroline Kingsly as this curious and most honorable spiritual leader from the 1880's. Lastly, this fall we'll be producing a one-night only celebration of our first ten years. Check out our Season page to find our more information about all these exciting projects we've got cooking for you around the Dog & Pony campfire. Happy September!
Check out our sweet new logo! We have been working with our graphic designer Rod Hunting for the past few months on rebranding ourselves, partly as an entrance into our 10th year, and partly because it was about damn time. In the coming weeks we'll be updating our site with the new branding, and in the next few days we'll be posting more info on our 10th Anniversary Season. Stay tuned!
Dog & Pony's next World Premiere
A vaudeville spectacular starring the morally just but dastardly counterfeiters, with amazing feats of strength performed by Benjamin Franklin himself! Magic, song and dance numbers and madcap buffoonery! Birth and death. Life and liberty. All in the pursuit of the American Dream.

Counterfeiters & Crime Scene Both Play at Collaboraction
After you catch Counterfeiters, see our friends in Crime Scene: A Chicago Anthology, a timely new theatrical reaction to Chicago's history of violent crime and a call to discover what it might take to create lasting change in our city. The show, a Collaboraction world premiere conceived and directed by Anthony Moseley, couples nonfiction source material such as interviews, articles, and online comments with three true Chicago crimes to raise critical questions surrounding segregation, poverty, the news media, popular culture, and our numbness to it all.
Each performance is followed by a facilitated conversation about Chicago's current crime epidemic, featuring representatives from a variety of nonprofit organizations that are actively working to stem the violence in our city.
