Bury the Dog

Pegasus Theater regrets that we will have to postpone the run of Bury the Dog until a later date. Hopefully, it will be soon.

To launch its regular 2017 season, Pegasus Theater will present Scott Kersnar's Bury the Dog, opening March 3 at the Graton Community Club. Set in Western Sonoma County, the play recounts the chaotic aftermath of a dog shooting. At the heart of this play is a love triangle that explores the conflict between compassion and exclusive romantic love.

Mike arrives at his old girlfriend Trina's house in answer to a frantic late-night call from her new husband Ken, a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur who tells Mike he had no one else to call. Ken tells him that he shot a neighbor’s menacing dog and now fears that this biker neighbor will take vengeance. He asks Mike to stand watch with him to protect Trina’s turf. The problem is, Trina (who is fetching her alcoholic mother home to live with her and Ken) is an animal lover. Trina's gregarious and compassionate personality collides with the exclusive rapture Ken envisioned for their marriage.
