About the play

Set in the competitive world of thoroughbred racing, DEVIL DOG SIX is a dark comedy of obsession and betrayal.
Devon Tramore, a good young jockey on her way to becoming great, lies in a hospital room with a serious brain injury following a racing pileup. The circumstances of the accident are suspicious. An investigation reveals jockey sexual harassment and racehorse owner sexism. The story veers from a traditional sports tale when during Devon's hospitalization she masters the art of leaving her body. Her new abilities give her a supernatural connection with the star horse, "Devil Dog Six". All the actors double as horses, jockeys and various characters in a breathtaking run for woman power and racial tolerance. 

About the production
DEVIL DOG SIX is directed by Resident Company Member, Leah Smith (DETROIT). Last season Leah won the Subscriber Best Director/Best Play Award for her direction of KISS OF THE SUN FOR PARDON. 

Her cast for DEVIL DOG SIX consists of three Rep veterans and three newcomers. Jeffry Chastang (WAYNE) performed the Voice in this season's first play, HERB THE GREEN KNIGHT. Four seasons ago Madelyn Porter (HAMTRAMCK) performed Cassaundra in the Rep production BURYING THE BONES. Two seasons ago Wayne David Parker (DEARBORN) played the role of Hutchings in the Rep production BUZZ. Newcomers to the Rep stage include Jaclynn Cherry (MADISON HEIGHTS), PJ Jenkinson (WESTLAND) and Matt Hollerbach (DETROIT).

About the Rep
The oldest professional (Union) non-profit theatre 
in the State of Michigan, 
the Detroit Repertory Theatre's mission 
is guided by the belief that the sense of community 
is stronger than the forces that splinter and 
that efforts to preserve unity deserve the same 
attention and support 
as the justly cultivated efforts to retain diversity. 
The implicit goal in all the theatre's efforts is 
to produce the best possible professional theatre while 
fostering cultural democratization of the arts, 
and fighting by example, 
the disturbing level of racism that still exists. 
Detroit Repertory Theatre is located 
in the geographical heart of the city at 
13103 Woodrow Wilson, Detroit, MI 48238 
Parking is Attended, Lighted, Fenced-In and Free.
