Dog Days

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dog Days is a play by British playwright Simon Gray [1] (1936-2008).

The original text

Dog Days is a play about the dog days of marriage. It is also about two brothers, more alike than they thought or knew. The play tells of difficult relationships and very human figures with a brutal honesty -- and lots of sharp humour.
