GREAT BARRINGTON >> "A Dog Park Story," a new one-act play written and directed by Linda Josephs, begins a four-weekend run Saturday at Mixed Company's theater at 37 Rosseter St.

Performances through July 9 are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Gary Cookson, Deann Halper, Gray Simons and Thom Whaley are featured in this original play set in a dog park where best friends Max, Rio and Killer meet every morning, joined by their owners, who also are best friends.
