The Little Dog Laughed

  • New Theatre 542 King Street Newtown, NSW, 2042 Australia (map)

“I’m a lesbian, he’s a fag, we’re in show business, we’re a perfect couple”

Mitchell is an actor, a rising star and firmly in the closet. Diane is his take-no-prisoners agent and awards-night beard. 

On a business trip to New York, Mitch calls for a rent boy and young hustler Alex turns up. Within days, Mitch is declaring he’s in love and planning to ‘come out’.

A bitingly funny tale of sexual ambiguity and immoral values, this is a scathing attack on Hollywood double standards and a moving portrayal of people yearning to connect.
