Set and costumes are the works of renowned Romanian costume designer Doina Levinta and stage managed by Radu Barbu.

'No Good Dog'

From the event description:

"No Good Dog" is a new original play directed, produced, written and performed by New School for Drama BFA students. The play is an experimental look into the concept of the binary that asks: "What is it to be two? What is it to be two within one?" This play explores the feeling of being stuck in a binary through Cat and No Good Dog, two beings who are fatefully entwined in what seems an endless cycle of leaving and returning to each other.

When: Saturday, May 11, 9-10 p.m. and Sunday, May 12, 9-10 p.m.
Where: Arnhold Hall, Floor 9., 55 W. 13th St..
Admission: Free
