“Danger Dog” and other charming variations on the “Beware of Dog” theme are written in Nepalese and/or English, according to your specifications, and turned into a uniquely personalized work of art. These artists’ work is quickly being replaced by digital technology, even in Nepal. In America as in faraway Nepal, these signs can be as effective as any alarm system, and are practical for indoor or outdoors.

Today is the final performance of “Coyote on a Fence” at Arena Stage. Written by Bruce Graham, the play is directed by James Warwick and presented by Theatre of Arts.

Sun 9.15 arenastageIn “Coyote On A Fence,” Bobby is an affable if simple convict on Death Row in a southern prison. He immolated thirty-seven African-American churchgoers because “God told [him] to.” His antipathy toward blacks is surpassed only by his hatred of Jews. He knows that he is guilty of the crime of which he was convicted, although he is not shamed by it.

John is the jailhouse publisher of a newspaper, the Death Row Advocate. Not believing in the death penalty on general principles, John learns that Bobby has grounds for an insanity plea and John feels that the insane in particular should not be executed. John is on Death Row himself for brutally stomping a drug dealer to death in a deal gone bad. John attempts to suppress his own sense of guilt, despite compelling physical evidence nailing him as the perpetrator
