Profound, Thought-provoking, Riveting, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if the thought of scripts alluding to Kant makes u shudder. Creative enactment of philosophical dilemmas without having to hear scholars bicker

Don't see it if uninterested in plots around the possibility of peace and the use of coercion/torture/force. Read more

Relevant, Intelligent, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy superb acting and plays with heart and depth but in an unconventional format of dogs as the protagonists. Totally absorbing!

Don't see it if you find it difficult to see the human actors as the dogs they represent and care about them and their struggle Read more

Relevant, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Clever

See it if you like to think when you go to the theatre. Supertitles make it easy if you're not fluent in Spanish

Don't see it if you have trouble understanding that animal characters may talk... seriously, I have met people who object to it! Read more
