Kitchen Dog presents “plays that challenge our moral and social consciences, invite our audiences to be provoked, challenged, and amazed.” Its recent productions have ranged from contemporary works including Noah Haidle’s Vigils, Allison Moore’s Slasher, and Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s boom to classics such as Chekhov’s The Seagull. Kitchen Dog also offers a New Works Festival. The theater’s name is taken from Samuel Beckett’sWaiting for Godot, in which the “kitchen dog” symbolizes the victim/participant in society’s seemingly endless cycle of ignorance and injustice.
