 Brenda, a seemingly guileless young actress, meets with Bradley, a troubled, middle-aged producer to discuss the film on which they are working. Brenda wants to be a star, she even chants for it! But Collette, the other actress in the film, is in her way. Both Brenda and Bradley want to make changes to the film and cunningly work together to get their way.

Meanwhile, Collette has her own agenda: She knows she is not as young as she once was and tries to convince writer, Victor, to alter the film so she can be heroine.
Then there is Victor, a naïve young writer from Off-Off Broadway who doesn't know how to handle any of this, and his mother just died....

Through cat fights and mock bonding these backstabbing stars cause confrontations over the state of the film. All the lies and backbiting are exposed as these four dogs go after their bone.
 
Four Dogs And A Bone was originally written by John Patrick Shanley and premiered in 1993 in Manhattan's Theatre Club. Written and directed by Shanley, the cast included Peter Jacobson, Arabella Field, Polly Draper and Loren Dean as Victor. The play ran 230 shows in it's season.

"If you're going to write a satire about the movie business, it had better be very, very funny...that criterion is most abundantly met." - NY Times.
 
"The funniest play in town, and the neatest, if kinda affectionate, evisceration of that ol' dream factory you will encounter in years." - NY Post
