Black Dog is a site-specific and immersive theatrical piece revolving around the relationship between two women - Ophelia and Rainey - who capture, torture, kill and consume men who have been accused of sex crimes. The play deals with themes of violence, cannibalism, and memory and is not for the faint of heart (or stomach)

This show is the second show in our fifth season, themed Jump Off A Building

Black Dog contains harsh language, nudity, as well as strong themes of violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

Bottle Alley Theatre Company is a DIY punk theatre company specializing in found space theatre. We have been staging strictly original work in all manner of odd places since 2012. Our work aspires to be raw, visceral, immersive, thought-provoking and, above all, honest. 

Here are some links from our previous shows  to get an idea of our aesthetic:
