The Jerome Stage

December 19, 2017 – January 7, 2018

In a strained political season, the provocative work of one edgy performance artist comes up against a conservative senator running for re-election. The senator has a lovable dog; a charming, folksy manner; and a campaign to cut “frivolous arts spending.” The artist has a plan for one final shocking performance with his NEA funding. How much could a dognapping really cost, anyway? In this tale of an attempt to kidnap and retrain a politician’s pooch, Lee Blessing explores the mysterious connections between dogs and their humans, politics and artists, and miraculous wonder in our lives.
