FOUR DOGS AND A BONE

WRITTEN BY JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY

Directed by Gabriella Rose-Carter

John Patrick Shanley’s bitingly funny satire inspired by his own experience in the movie business.

Brenda wants to be a star, she even chants for it! Collette, the other actress in the film, is in her way, so Brenda must convince Bradley, the producer, to cut Collette's part. Bradley, knowing full well that the film is seriously over budget, intimates that he will do it, if she can convince her stepbrother, a giant movie star, to make a cameo in the film. Collette has her own agenda: She knows she's not as young as she once was. She tries to convince Victor, the writer, to alter the film so she can be the heroine. Victor, a naïve young writer from Off-Off Broadway, doesn't know how to handle any of this, and his mother just died.

"The producer should recognize himself," Shanley said in an interview with the LA Times. "There aren't that many producers who screwed me out of $25,000 and who also have rectal problems."
