Do you happily don orange and brown every Sunday in the fall only to spend the rest of the day wallowing in shame and drinking watered-down canned beer? Do you have recurring nightmares that Johnny Football has packed his bags and taken his talents elsewhere?
If you answered yes to these questions, you're likely a Cleveland Browns fan who needs a hearty dose of therapy or comic relief or both. Lucky for you, help is on it's way with a new play, "Dawg Pounded," which opens at Playhouse Square in August.
Penned by Cleveland native and lifelong local sports fan Tim Tyler, "Dawg Pounded" tells the tale of two die-hard fans coping with the trials and tribulations of a regular Browns season, while also taking part in hilarious reenactments of historic Browns moments, such as the 1964 NFL Championship Game, The Drive, The Move, and the like. A handful of parody songs are peppered throughout the play, to the tune of "Wouldn't it Be Nice," and "Downtown," offering up a therapeutic examination of what, exactly, it means to be a Cleveland Browns fan.
10 shows are planned for Friday and Saturday nights, August 8 - September 6 at Kennedy’s Theatre at Playhouse Square, where— you guessed it— plenty of beer will be served.
