    The jarring nature of this play makes its emotional impact hit that much harder. Devastating in its succinctness, and a strong call-to-action vis a vis gun violence. I’m genuinely rooting for these dogs, and not just because I love dogs—and despite, as the Nurse points out, the fact that they won’t solve the problem alone.

    It goes from silly to sobering in an instant. Asher's work is to playwriting what the haiku is to poetry. Short, moving, minimalistic, and all-encompassing. Each short piece Asher is a lesson in economy that more playwrights could follow and learn from. Read this play. Take it in, let yourself go into the world created on this page.
