IN THE THEATRE:
 

THE DOG IN THE MANGER: 

"If she can’t eat, nobody will."
When the Countess Diana’s secretary, Teodoro, expresses his love for her lady-in-waiting, Marcela, Diana finds herself consumed with jealousy - and, to her surprise, in love with Teodoro. The two women begin an intense battle of class, wealth, and the common disregard for the desires of others as they fight for Teodoro’s affections.  A humorous but insightful examination of privilege, The Dog in the Manger leaves us asking, “If I raised my voice, would any of this change?”
