A philosopher, exiled atheism amidst a bloody religious war, knows his theories can ignite a revolution. There’s only one thing holding him back; his personal life has collapsed into chaos. In a desperate attempt to cure his wife’s inexplicable, animalistic behaviour, he hires a dog trainer. What begins as an experiment in canine obedience erupts into a power struggle between the sexes – unleashing violent reckonings from the animals within.

"A thrilling theatrical vision unlike any writing I know of in Canada"

- Guillermo Verdecchia
