BASED ON THE GILLER® PRIZE-WINNING BOOK!

Experience the acclaimed literary journey that has captured the hearts of readers worldwide in a captivating stage adaptation inspired by the Giller® Prize-winning novel, Fifteen Dogs. Unleash your imagination and join the pack in a tale that explores the limits of power, the intricacies of identity, and the unbreakable bonds of loyalty. The gods Hermes and Apollo make a bet over a beer and grant 15 dogs human consciousness, watching from above as the pups discover the poetry and the pitfalls of complex thought and emotion. In this modern-day fable of fate, faith, love, and language, the pack must reckon with morality, mortality, and the profound relationships they share with humans.

“Philosophical and silly; political and light; imaginative and real.”Toronto Star

 “Equal parts charming, moving and utterly hilarious, Fifteen Dogs features an epic story that is thoughtfully told by a knock-out ensemble cast.” Next Magazine

“This play delivers one doggone spectacular tale.’’ – The Globe and Mail

LISA'S NOTE    

“There’s a reason this play was completely sold out in Toronto: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Kite Runneras far as adaptations of contemporary novels into plays, count Fifteen Dogs among the best. It will take you entirely by surprise while leaving your heart and mind very full. This play is about so much more than dogs, it’s a powerful reflection on our shared human experience.”
