Ajijic Readers Theatre
The next production of LLT’s Ajijic Readers Theatre is “Four Dogs And A Bone” by John Patrick Shanley. Rosann Balbontin directs Donna Burroughs, Collette Clavadetscher, Kristine Handgen and John Ward.
A witty satire of the movie business. Though it is biting and cruelly critical it is also very funny – and that’s probably why it ran for 230 performances when it premiered in New York in 1993.
“’Four Dogs And A Bone’ is the funniest play in town, and the neatest, if kinda affectionate, evisceration of that ol’ dream factory you will encounter in years.” — NY Post
Show dates and time: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 14, 15 and 16, all at 4 p.m.
Tickets, 200 pesos, are available at lakesidelittletheatre.com, or check website for box office hours for this show.
