MT Repertory Theatre's "Love That Dog"

“What was up with the snowy woods poem we read today? Why doesn’t a person just keep going if he has so many miles to go before he sleeps?” In Love That Dog, a one-person play adapted from the book by Sharon Creech, a young student ruminates on the confusing, pointless nature of poetry and the complete impossibility of a person writing their own poems. But, slowly, over the course of this 45-minute play, a young poet emerges with the help of a teacher, a pencil, some yellow paper, and, of course, a dog.
