Lafayette College Theater is presenting DOG EAT DOG, a sharp satire of the top one percent coping with an economic downturn, from Thursday, Sept. 20 through Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. in the Williams Center for the Arts, 317 Hamilton St.
Tickets for the production are $6 and can be obtained by calling the Williams Center box office at (610) 330-5009.
The author of the play, Mary Gallagher, serves as the 2012-13 Closs Visiting Writer-in-Residence at Lafayette. She will be reading from and discussing her work a week before the production at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 13 in the Williams Center.
The play is set in an affluent suburb in a mid-sized American city at a time when the national economy has slid from recession into depression and even worse. The work shatters the moral superiority of the 99 percent with blast after blast of laughter.
Gallagher is a long-time writing teacher at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and a women’s theater activist.
Dana Pardini ’12 of Whitehall, Pa. is directing.
