By Melis Aker
With Music & Lyrics by Melis Aker & the Lazours
Directed by Machel Ross

Ars Nova @ Greenwich House

Name Your Price Tix Start @ $5

In Melis Aker’s world premiere play HOUND DOG, a young musician returns from abroad to her hometown of Ankara, Turkey to look after her widowed father. Forced to reckon with the family and community she left behind, an investigation into her grieving parent’s strange pilgrimage to Graceland unravels into a sonic mirage of memory packed with humor, nostalgia and the love we cultivate across generations. Directed by Machel Ross with music by Aker and the Lazours, this cross-cultural jam-session-meets-play explores the winding path towards forgiveness and belonging. 

A co-production with PlayCo
