This play is not only very funny it is also very moving. It has hidden depths and is multi layered . The four characters are beautifully fleshed out and each character has a journey within the play. Dog Days is unpredictable and never boring. The young couple, the suited and booted Tony, and Hayley all height and eyeliner are a strong contrast to the older couple of John and Cate. Optmism and youth square up to age and maturity when the tussle of the house selling process begins. What seems a straightforward sale is far from that...and this hilarious romps leads the audience into the dark waters of love loss and real estate. This is theatre at its best...entertaining relevant ...laugh out loud. It is so funny and witty..I defy anybody not to laugh.
