A graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration with a minor in real estate, Maxine Hepfer now serves as a Senior in the Transaction Real Estate group at EY in Dallas, Texas. Alongside providing real estate advisory services, Maxine Hepfer enjoys attending performances at the Kitchen Dog Theater, which she appreciates for its unique and thought-provoking pieces.
The Kitchen Dog Theater took its name from the play Waiting For Godot by Samuel Beckett. Although the kitchen dog in Beckett’s play represents the futility of the struggle for happiness, the Kitchen Dog Theater presents work that questions society’s cycle of injustice and ignorance. Hence its plays present sometimes controversial material and encourage audience members to question conventional beliefs about culture and the self.
One of the Kitchen Dog Theater’s spring shows, I’m Gonna Pray For You So Hard by Halley Feiffer, will open on February 12th, 2016. The play, directed by the company’s Lee Trull, tackles the conflict between parents and children through a complicated relationship between a playwright and his daughter, who is an off-Broadway actress.
