To close its its 31st season, Kitchen Dog Theater will present with the World Premiere of High Five by Midgalia Cruz, Matt Lyle, Allison Moore, Jonathan Norton, and Regina Taylor. For the headlining production of its 2022 New Works Festival, Kitchen Dog Theater has commissioned a hilarious and heartfelt evening of five short plays that each shine a spotlight on one of the five senses: taste, touch, vision, hearing and smell.

The High Five plays include:

  • Dinner with Dee by Migdalia Cruz (Taste) - This is what happens when you dine with destiny…and need a good strong broth.
  • A Dance of Joy by Matt Lyle (Sight) - A young man dances a powerfully climactic dance of a lifetime that leaves the entire world covered in his joy. His family disapproves.
  • What’s Heard Between Words by Regina Taylor (Hearing) - A Black woman goes on a poetic and visceral journey to unearth the rich history- past and present – behind her voice.
  • Human Resource by Allison Moore (Touch) - This play explores our need for physical connection in a remote world.
  • Ode To Zeb by Jonathan Norton (Smell) - On a lonely highway, two strangers meet their fate.
