About the Play

After ten years clean and sober, Molly Drexler falls off the wagon and drives her Prius through her living room wall. With a hole in the house as big as the hole in their hearts, Molly’s two sisters, mother, father, and wicked stepmother descend on the house for an “intervention” that doesn’t play out the way anyone thought it would. A sharp and poignant new comedy from one of Netflix’s hottest writers.

  1. I had the pleasure of seeing Bad Dog on Saturday, October 17, 2015, at the Olney Theatre, to a packed house. Where do I start? Olney Theatre, you are a Washington treasure for a reason; fabulous staging and technique, fabulous casting and wonderful portrayal of so many family dynamics and social issues at once. I laughed, wanted to cry, laughed, felt great empathy, laughed, laughed, felt bad about laughing… Go see it, you’ll understand. Wonderful! Great job!
