World premiere of UK Underdog — Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team (START) in association with Pacific Resident Theatre presents writer/performer Steve Spiro’s funny, refreshing and highly theatrical solo show, based on true events. A young Jewish boy in London transforms himself, through sheer force of will (and plenty of chutzpah) from bullied underdog to martial artist, boxer, community leader and animal rights activist. All proceeds from the production will benefit START Rescue as well as selected animal charities and anti-bullying groups.

“Profoundly engaging, continually funny and deeply poignant. It stayed with me for days.”
— Bruce Joel Rubin, screenwriter, Ghost; Jacob’s Ladder; My Life; The Time Traveler’s Wife
