A Solider and His Dog
Kansas City playwright, actor, and veteran Logan Black explores the age old relationship between K-9 and human in this deeply affecting true story. While serving in Iraq, Black and Diego, his Specialized Search Dog, were one of the most successful K-9 bomb sniffing teams ever. They worked side by side, saved each other’s lives, and survived the bloodiest year of the war together. With a life-sized Diego puppet created by Mesner Puppet Theater, this KC Fringe favorite takes on a whole new life in this expanded, full length and fully-realized production.
Content Note: Bond contains realistic military situations that may be challenging to some audience members.
