“The Little Dog Laughed” was nominated for a 2006 Tony award for best play. It is described by LCCT as “a comedy-farce with a lot of heart, honesty and laughs. All four roles give the actors lots of opportunities for fun, emotional depth, and great work.”

Its characters are Mitchell, a Hollywood star on the rise, age 20s to early 30s; Mitchell’s acerbic agent, Diane, age early 30s to mid-40s; a hustler named Alex, age early to mid-20s; and Alex's girlfriend, Ellen, in her early 20s.

The production contains adult language and situations and is intended for mature audiences.
