Heart of a Dog

Poster Designer: Saman Farzaneh

The English premiere of ‘Heart of a Dog’, presented by NOWADAYS THEATRE company, is a comical adaptation by Mohammad Yaghoubi, based on a novel by the classic Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov.

The story is about a stray dog saved by a successful surgeon who runs an operation on the dog by trepanning his skull and giving him human pituitary glands. Later on, the dog gets hired by the Soviet State and starts working for them.
