Dogs Are Better Than People at Best of the Fest

Dogs Are Better Than People at Best of the FestSarah Hunter’s profound and clever comedy, Dogs Are Better Than People, developed & directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson is a BEST of FEST Encore livestream performance on June 12th at 7 pm Pacific time. Hunter’s hilarious one-woman show is an eccentric romp through drinking, bad men, and fabulous dogs who tell her story.
The encore performance is awarded by Whitefire Theatre’s Solofest 2021


Sarah Hunter truly believes that Dogs are better than people. God is dog spelled backward after all so in tribute to all dogs in her life over the years, the writer/performer has them tell her story. Lilly the Airedale along with Chiweenie duo, Koa and Louis the Fourteenth and others spill all about her humorous journey beginning with her divorce in Chicago, frustration, bad relationships, to revelation, sobriety and celebration in finding a "working relationship" in sobriety with Matthew, the man who appreciates both her and her dogs.

Sarah Hunter is the other half of Two Heads are Better Productions. She began creating characters and dramas in her neighborhood backyard at age eight back in West Lafayette, Indiana. From graduate school to her time in Los Angeles, Sarah remains a dedicated student of classical and modern theater.

She has dubbed Japanese cartoons, done voice-over work, had her original plays
produced in Los Angeles and Pasadena as well as being a published short story writer. She continues acting, creating, writing and dreaming.

The most important thing for Sarah is the continuous re-inventing of herself each time she writes another play or TV episode. Working with Sandra Cruze, on TWO HEADS ARE BETTER PRODUCTIONS has allowed her to continue writing episodes and acting, working on her one-woman solo shows which she has presented at Beyond Baroque in Venice, CA and her encore of “Dogs are Better Than People” at the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks. Season one of her multi-award winning web series “We’re Not Dead Yet” (WNDY) created with Sandra Cruze is now playing on YouTube.

Jessica Lynn Johnson is a published playwright, recipient of BEST NATIONAL SOLO ARTIST AWARD, Board member of the LA Women's Theatre Festival and Founder & CEO of Soaring Solo Theatre Company LLC. For years, Jessica has taught an ongoing FREE weekly solo theatre class, as well as paid private coaching sessions to guide solo artists in the development of their 1 person plays.
