Dog Gone


I am a sucker for puns, so when I saw the company name “Far Fetched Productions” in the program, I added it to my list of shows to see. Irene Sankoff plays a woman who is at a low point in her life and is at a crossroads. To top it all off she has lost her dog in an unfamiliar place. While she waits to see if her pooch is at Animal Control we get the back stories of what has been going on in her life, her past failures in caring for things, and the story of how she got her furry friend. It is an emotional journey that works on multiple levels with some comedic moments to lighten the mood. Well done.

Dog Gone—Planetarium

A comedy about a dog, what more could you ask for? See the co-creator of “Come From Away” perform. See the writer’s first play since her hit “Slut” at the Toronto Fringe. Written specifically for a Winnipeg audience.

“Boy does Brenda ever know her dogs and what they mean to us.”

“Irene is totally charming and she sure can tell a good story.”

“Listened to every word, I was hooked from beginning to end.

“I laughed and a little misty-eyed too!”
