About Battle of Black and Dogs

Set in a remote corner of Africa, Battle of Black and Dogs is a politically, sexually, and culturally charged tale of psychological warfare that erupts at an isolated construction compound. When a hired man mysteriously dies, his brother arrives at the compound to collect the body—and the site manager, his fiancé, and an engineer all become embroiled in the cover up of the worker’s death. 

The haunting thriller by acclaimed French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès is directed by visionary theatre artist Robert Woodruff, whose 2009 production of Notes from Underground was hailed as "a brilliantly original work of art" (The Boston Globe).

Contains strong language, nudity, and violence. Please contact the box office at 203.432.1234 if you have further questions about the themes or content of this production.
