Love is a Blue Tick Hound
About the Play
Love Is A Blue Tick Hound is a collection of four 20-minute, one-act plays, three of which have received New York premieres and all of which have won multiple festivals throughout the U.S. and Canada. There is a state of inertia—a kind of reckless apathy—that is soul-crushing, yet we stand back and allow it. A thankless job. A bad marriage. A dysfunctional family. Although we are not truly "stuck," we convince ourselves that we are. Getting out requires math (the hard kind): Why do we settle... and what is the full cost of leaving? These are the central questions in Love is a Blue Tick Hound. Four intimate duets—Fin & Euba, Clean, The Gulf, and Stuck—that bear witness to all the many facets of love as the pairings form, flounder, and fall apart.
