He Wants to Run

David Kleinberg's latest solo theater work -- "He Wants to Run" -- is about a guy who hates running and dogs and how I ended up running with my neighbor's dog in Cloverdale for 13 years. At one point, I said to Butler, "We've been running for 10 years now and we don't have one picture of us." And Butler responds, "Dave, this relationship has never been about Instagram." The piece has been labeled a beautiful meditation on living and dying as told through the story of a man running with a dog.

El último trabajo teatral en solitario de David Kleinberg, "He Wants to Run", trata sobre un tipo que odia correr y los perros y cómo terminé corriendo con el perro de mi vecino en Cloverdale durante 13 años. En un momento le dije a Butler: "Hemos estado corriendo durante 10 años y no tenemos una foto de nosotros". Y Butler responde: "Dave, esta relación nunca ha sido sobre Instagram". La pieza ha sido etiquetada como una hermosa meditación sobre la vida y la muerte contada a través de la historia de un hombre corriendo con un perro.
