New Owner
By Arielle Gray and Tim Watts
The Last Great Hunt [Australia]

From the creators of The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer comes a play about loss, friendship, and new beginnings. Bart is a boisterous shelter puppy awaiting a home. Mabel is a lonely widow trying to fill the hole in her heart. A profound friendship begins the day they find each other, yet Mabel is old and Bart is young—and, after a short time together, suddenly alone. Combining puppetry, live performance, and animation, New Owner takes us on a journey of discovery and adventure, as seen through a dog’s eyes.
