Heart of A Dog

Mikhail Bulgakov
Adapted for stage by Frank Galati
Directed by Charlie Oates

Under the direction of Department Chair, Charlie Oates, the audience takes the stage in this critical satire on the creation of a new kind of man. A wealthy urologist transplants a deceased criminal’s testicles and pituitary gland into a dog. What ensues as the dog proceeds in becoming more human is both chaotic and sarcastically hilarious. Mr. Oates has directed and/or performed numerous interdisciplinary collaborations and explorations into alternative performance spaces worldwide.
