The Little Dog Laughed' is a cautionary tale about a handsome film actor who dares to come out of the closet and his tough, ballsy agent who wants him to stay in it. When the actor falls for a rent boy, who also happens to have a girlfriend, an awkward love triangle is created. Carter Beane's play deftly satirises Hollywood's eternal hypocrisy about sex, since even today, there are still no openly gay leading men in Tinseltown.
