The Old Man Who Thought He Had a Dog

Sun Nov 12, 13:00 - Tue Nov 14, 20:00



Embark on a hilariously absurd train odyssey with a curmudgeonly old man, bound to break free from his melancholic monotony. Or perhaps consult his ever-perceptive canine companion. Encounter a captivating cast of peculiar yet strangely familiar individuals, from the enigmatic French conductor to the alluring prostitute. In this liminal realm, memories, dreams, desires, and haunting shadows converge, offering a chance to breathe life into what was lost. Prepare for a journey brimming with laughter, introspection, and the extraordinary.
