John Everyman has been gifted a dog, which he considers an unwelcome intrusion into an otherwise ordered life. However, the demands of ‘owning’ one lead that life in directions he had not anticipated. In a compellingly human monologue that ranges from slapstick through to profound pathos, this gentle yet deeply moving contemplation of the meaning of life and love will send you out into the night with a sense of having journeyed to the heart of what it is to be human.
