Great Human Race

Once again, Manbites Dog Theater and fellow Durham theater company Little Green Pig are partnering for The Great Human Race* as Team PigDog to raise funds to support our work. Meeting our goal of $10,000 will help both companies pay local artists to create great theater here in Durham.

(* The Great Human Race is an annual 5K race/walk fundraiser for Non-Profits organized by The Volunteer Center of North Carolina. It takes place Saturday April 6 at 8:30 a.m., starting at Northgate Mall (near Sears Automotive). There is no charge to walk; a runner registration fee is required.)
