In this world premiere production, the Cleveland-based Schwabauer combines reflections on love, sex, and alcohol with loud-out-loud stories from an awkward girlhood. Tackling German shepherds, boyfriends, and other attachments, the writer/performer takes the audience through her journey from lonely child to young partier to (relatively) well-adjusted adult. “This is NOT About My Dead Dog” is part pain journal and part offbeat rumination on aquatic life. It is heartbreaking, but always bracingly honest and funny.
