Daring Dog Monologues poster

DARING DOG MONOLOGUES was our Melbourne Fringe production for 2019. The monologues for this production were selected through a blind-read process from scripts submitted by MWT members. The show blurb for Daring Dog Monologues ran as follows:

A dog flies breathlessly all the way to the moon. A woman-dog dreams first of love, then revenge. A dogless man reveals a secret talent. We went digging in a local garden bed, a Russian spaceship and a suburban bedroom or two, and these are the juicy treasures we turned up. Quick, share them with us, before the sun goes down, before we lose our bravado and just start burying them all.
