A clown struggles to find humor in a world that suddenly feels very dark after he is abandoned by his company following the death of his dog in this new and timely solo work by outrageous writer/performer Justin Sayre. “The Lamentable Tale of a Dog; as told by Beppo, formerly of the Castiglioni company of Padua” is a treatise on the power of humor in uneasy times and the resilience we can find by laughing at impending gloom. Commissioned by The Out of Line Series for the Highline Park in New York, the play debuted on May 18, 2017.
The play was dedicated to Nora Mae Lyng.
