Diane is a jaded arts critic who glories in writing bloodthirsty reviews for the shows she thinks are sub-standard—which are most of them. Maya is an up-and-coming starlet who has been on a string of luck and therefore sees nothing but possibility. Janet is a veteran of the whole scene who has sees things exactly as they are, and is therefore thoroughly depressed. While Diane is preparing for her next big piece, Janet asks her to be involved in a new project that unwittingly forces Diane to face her biggest fear: a return to the public eye. A dark comedy, A Dog at a Feast examines the power of the fear of judgement, and how we are all our own worst critics.
