In 1957, Soviet scientists sent the first living thing into outer space: a stray dog. Inspired by true events, MUTTNIK ​is a story about purpose, life and death all told from the perspective of a Russian pooch.

Winner of Orlando Fringe 2018 Best Solo Show (drama), ​MUTTNIK ​is written and performed by Orlando artist Bruce Ryan Costella and will be performed at KC Fringe festival for the first time. Throughout the festival, BC Theatricals will be accepting donations of dog treats in support of a local dog shelter as a part of its “Good Dog Initiative.”
