Dead Dad Dog

By John McKay
Published in volume Scot-Free

A short, witty, comic nightmare in which an unemployed, trendy young Scottish man is dogged by his deceased father, who was a Hoover salesman in his prime. An offbeat comedy with a political edge.

John McKay's short play Dead Dad Dog was first staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in May 1988, and then at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in October 1988.
