The Dog Show

By Ivan Faute

In small town Missouri, the once thriving Sparks Dog Kennels is eerily quiet. All that remains are the empty chain-link kennels, the scene of a terrible event that no one, especially owner Commodore and his adopted daughter Shawnee want to talk about. Commodore's wife Pauline, the key to understanding the tragedy, is locked away in a mental institution, where Shawnee visits and undermines any recovery by smuggling in booze. When Commodore and Pauline's son Alex returns unannounced, the frayed family is pushed to confront the past. What happened to all the dogs? Why can't, or won't anyone admit anything about the past? As Alex continues to agitate everything and everyone and Shawnee refuses to face the future, the remnants of the once-mighty dog show crumble into lies, recriminations and a terrible confession of guilt.
