The loyalty of Labs. The steadfastness of greyhounds. The fierce affection of a Bichon Frise. When it comes to love, no creature shows it like a dog.

Starting March 13th, STAGE FORCE celebrates all things canine with DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS, a theatrical evening of music, poetry, stories and scenes from contemporary wits to the legends of literature. Learn the true meaning of the exotic dance your terrier does for dinner.  Find out what your mutt is really thinking when he watches you make love. Join a harrowing and ultimately redemptive dog rescue mission.

DOGS is a journey through the whole of what a dog’s life means to us – and what ours means to them – from clowning to companionship, from grief to the hope for a better life.

Produced in partnership with the Cocheco Valley Humane Society and the NHSPCA, performances of DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS will be introduced with help from featured rescue dogs, and those interested in adopting will be able to meet eligible pups-in-need on the Kittery Community Center grounds during the run.

DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS features the talents of Jamie Bradley, Christine Dulong, Andy Fling, CJ Lewis, Jessica Miller, and Ryan Salvato, with original music by CJ Lewis.
