Music for Dogs” is a one-woman black comedy, that has been described as “poignant … and bloody funny” with a performance that is “a perfect balance between sorrow, humour …and acceptance.” (The Southern Star.)
The action takes place on Dublin’s Burrow Beach during the property boom of Ireland’s Celtic Tiger years. A woman, Jane MacDonald, records a message for her estranged brother and sister, telling them the very funny - if somewhat dubious - means by which she came to make the fortune she is leaving to them. Though the context of Janey’s personal tragedy is a dark one, her essential humanity and joy in life are very much to the fore.
The play (written by Paula Meehan, currently Ireland’s Professor of Poetry) was first broadcast on RTE Radio in 2001 and published by Dedalus Press in 2009. It received its stage premiere in Allihies, West Cork, in the summer of 2014 and played to sold-out houses in a lunchtime run in Shrewsbury in October 2014.
