Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby, who gained international acclaim with her Netflix comedy special, Nanette (which Gadsby had previously performed in New York City), is back Off-Broadway with her newest solo show: Douglas. Named after her dog, the show weaves comedy and drama to examine art history, trauma, the patriarchy, and much more.
Douglas, which began performances at the Daryl Roth Theater July 23, has been extended a second time, through September 7 (the show was previously extended through August 24).

Douglas is written and performed by Gadsby. The show had its world premiere in Australia, followed by a U.S. tour that launched in San Francisco in April. The American premiere is presented by WestBeth Entertainment.
