At first it was conceived as trilogy, and the sequel, titled ''Manderlay'' (based in part on Brecht's opera ''Theatre/TheRiseAndFallOfTheCityOfMahagonny'') takes Grace ([[TheOtherDarrin now played by]] Bryce Dallas Howard) to the DeepSouth and comments on racism, but it was not as well-received as ''Dogville'' was. The third installment, ''Wasington'', [[DevelopmentHell may never get made]], but let's hope.

* MiddleOfNowhereStreet MiddleOfNowhereStreet * NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Grace does nothing but good deeds for the citizens, who in turn are [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bastards]] who constantly expect more and later abuse and enslave her. [[spoiler:Later deconstructed as it turns out Grace is a MafiaPrincess and orders everyone in the town killed except for the one citizen who thought highly of her: Moses the dog.]]

Moved to the Trivia tab.
* DawsonCasting: Intentionally so. Grace seems to be barely out of puberty. She's played by Creator/NicoleKidman.

* TheOtherDarrin: Bryce Dallas Howard replaced Kidman for ''Manderlay''. Presumably, Howard herself will be replaced if the third installment ever gets out of DevelopmentHell.

* MessianicArchetype: Grace throughout pretty much the whole play. She offers inspiration and kindness, asking only to be allowed to help others and live peacefully among them. Eventually, she suffers for the sins of others and even ends up lugging around a cross-analog. In the end [[spoiler: she's offered up as a sacrifice by the towns people and her father shows up to save her. Then it's all turned on its head when he talks her OUT of turning the other cheek any longer and she has the town wiped out for what they did to her]]

''Dogville'' is a minimalist drama directed by Creator/LarsVonTrier and starring, among others, NicoleKidman, Paul Bettany and LaurenBacall. It's based on the poem "Jenny die Seeräuberbraut" ("Music/PirateJenny" or "The Black Freighter") from Creator/BertoltBrecht's ''Theatre/TheThreepennyOpera''. It's also inspired, in part, by Friedrich Dürrenmatt's play ''Theatre/TheVisit''. It is very, ''very'' hard to watch, and '''not for kids''', despite getting a 12+ rating in some countries.

The story focuses around Grace, a woman running from TheMafia, who hides in nearby Dogville and is found by Thomas Edison, Junior (no relation). Tom presents her to the townsfolk of Dogville who, at first, are reluctant to take care of her and accept her favors, but as time passes, they are more than willing to have Grace to do all the work around town. And all the... ''work'' around town.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Grace. Made all the more ambiguous by the discussion just before the ending, where it suddenly becomes very clear that she's only a child.
