A couple of years ago, my friend and dramaturg Tilman Raabke asked me to write a play for Theatre Oberhausen in the Ruhr region of German.

Deborah Ross: 'A dog will love you unconditionally and will continue to love you unconditionally unless someone else feeds it'
Saturday 26 June 2010
If you ask me, it is about time someone told the truth about dogs and this "unconditional love" business. In fact, let me tell you a story about a woman who knows a bit about it, and even though this woman is me, let's pretend it isn't, because it would just be too distressing otherwise.
