Boris, a castrated bobtail dog, will be named director of a Belgian theatre company, its scriptwriter said yesterday, Reuter reports from Brussels. Bert Verhoye of the Black Comedy company said Boris would be perfect: 'He can sit up, lick the minister. He can bark at the staff and chase away job applicants who annoy us. He knows as much about theatre as 80 per cent of all theatre directors.' Boris was nominated as a protest against a new law making theatre companies have a director.
