Margo McCreary, a Minneapolis-based artist presents an adult puppet show about an irrepressible dog and his aging owner, created and performed with live music and original songs composed by Marya Hart and drums and percussion by Bruce Wintervold. Directed by Zaraawar Mistry.

When changes in his aging owner’s life begin to affect his everyday routine, Jack the dog responds doggedly, causing confusion and distress for all. An unexpected adventure to the dog park threatens to only make matters worse, but a brood of neighborly urban chickens intervenes to save the day!

Set to a jazzy score with lively original songs, Diggity Dog Days is a paw-lickin’ good frolic on heartache and hope.
