Dog Days is a work of contemporary music-theatre from celebrated composer David T. Little that incorporates elements of opera, musical theatre, and rock-infused concert music to investigate the psychology of a working-class American family pitted against a not-so-distant-future wartime scenario. Based on a powerful short story by Judy Budnitz, Dog Days is set in the aftermath of an unimaginable catastrophe as a family struggles to survive. The teenage daughter clings to hope, unwilling to accept their dire situation, until a disturbing stranger shows up at the doorstep.
