Theater Preview: Logan Black Brings “BOND: the story of a soldier and his dog” to Bridge St. Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]
Logan Black will tell you that 2006 was one of the bloodiest years in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He knows because he was there. And he will recreate the experience on stage at the Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill with his one-man, one-dog show, “BOND: the story of a soldier and his dog,” opening on Friday (November 6) and running through Sunday, November 15.
You’ve read about that war: Iraqi society fractured and eventually devolved into sectarian violence, Saddam Hussein was executed, and this young man with a yellow Lab at his side found himself right in the middle of it. Now you can experience it as well.
In his award-winning one-man show writer/performer Logan Black tells the story of his experiences as a Specialized Search Dog Handler, training and later working alongside his bomb-sniffing K-9 partner Diego in Al Anbar province. It’s a true narrative of monotony, boredom and daily searches of cars, streets and buildings, interspersed with harrowing episodes when actual weapons caches were discovered, when approaching cars wouldn’t obey commands to stop, and when their convoy was hit by an IED (improvised explosive device).
