    Dog Sees God

    An “unauthorized parody,” the play reimagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as degenerate teenagers. Drug use, child sexual abuse, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual relations and identity are among the issues covered in this parody of the works of Charles M. Schulz. The show cleverly disguises the identity of each character, so that the issues of the play draw more focus than attempting to guess “who’s who”. However, the use of these famous characters is what gives the show its emotional punch: even these beloved child characters must someday grow up and deal with a harsh reality as they find their place in the world.

    Please Purchase your tickets for this event.
