HOME IS WHERE YOUR DOG IS

Conceived, Written and Directed By

Although the commonly accepted definition of
“home” is a place where one lives, for many
people their homes are distant memories and
provide only a metaphor for survival. According
to the National Alliance to End Homelessness,
there were an estimated 643,067 homeless
people in the United States in 2011. Set in
the modern day rural United States, this production
reveals the struggles of everyday life
in the streets. By examining the relationship
between George and his dog Chucks, we
explore what happens when the social world
around us begins to deconstruct and redefine
the meaning of “home.”
