Published Reviews

"Know Dog is full of bite... Through lean, spare and sometimes lyrical language, Walat weaves a strange story about a young woman named Alice [in] this oddball comedy-drama-love story."

Austin360.com

"A boy is looking at his older brother, who's looking at his aunt, who's looking at her husband's dog, which is represented by us, the audience, and we're looking back at all of them. That moment captures something of the essence of Kathryn Walat's Know Dog...a tale of quiet desperation in a beat-up little world..."
