"Dog Logic," a dark dramedy with profound insights into the mind of a man unaffected by the obsession with wealth, acquisition or urban sprawl, confronted by his grasping mother, his tender yet desperate ex-wife and an unscrupulous real estate broker, all eager to acquire his land, a rundown pet cemetery. Originally produced by South Coast Repertory in 1988.

The Play

A quirky dark dramedy about the caretaker of a seedy pet cemetery trying to avoid coming to terms with progress, a hilarious but disturbing study of devotion to ideals in the face of urban sprawl.

"Dog Logic" originally premiered in 1988 at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, directed by Martin Benson, who introduced the play to Sharyn Case, a longtime friend. Case fell in love with its quirkiness and life-affirming story.
