DOG SEES GOD: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is Bert V Royal’s unauthorized parody of the beloved comic strip. Take everything you know about these classic characters, scrape off their innocent and childlike veneer, and re-imagine them as high school students. Then turn it all on its ear and shake it up with an unhealthy dose of angst. This show is what comes spilling out.When his dog dies from rabies, (yes, that dog) CB begins to ponder the question of an existence of the afterlife. He turns to his friends in an effort to find an answer. Sadly, these friends are not the rock he thinks they will be.
His best friend Van is now too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation. His little sister has gone Goth (this month). His ex-girlfriend has anger issues and is institutionalized for a violent act of jealousy. All of his other friends are too inebriated or self-centered to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group’s bullying, offers CB a peace of mind, and it sets in motion a friendship that will push CB’s teen angst to the very limits.
All the hallmarks, struggles and pitfalls of High School (drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual identity) collide as the play careens toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.
