Dog Sees God is Bert V. Royal's unauthorized parody of the beloved comic strip. Take everything you know about these characters, scrape off the innocence, reimagine them as high school students, and add an unhealthy dose of angst.
When his dog dies from rabies (yes, that dog), CB begins to ponder the question the afterlife's existence. 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 is too burnt out, his little sister has gone goth (this month), his ex has anger issues, and his other friends are too self-centered to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with a bullied artistic kid offers CB peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push his teen angst to the limit.
All the struggles of high school (drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual identity) collide as the play careens toward an ending that's haunting and hopeful.
With breakneck speed and endless invention, Field Guide skates through one of the greatest — and longest! — novels ever written: The Brothers Karamazov. Rude Mechs takes a page (or several hundred) from Fyodor Dostoevsky's powerful meditation on faith, meaning, and morality and mischievously adds standup comedy, pop music dance numbers, a cardboard bear, and a talking bird to it.
"Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!" Miss Lettice Douffet can't help but exaggerate the dreary history of Fustian House, one of the least stately of Britain's stately homes. But when she's caught creating outrageous stories about the house's historical past, she incurs the wrath of Miss Lotte Schon, an inspector for the Preservation Trust. Neither woman will meekly step aside as their battle rapidly turns into a devilish friendship and a series of escapades that make Lettice's original fancies pale in comparison. This hit comedy by the author of Amadeus is delectable.
Minor Character: Six Translations of Uncle Vanya at the Same Time, an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, is an irreverent mash-up of six different English-language translations — from the dusty 1916 edition to Google Translate's wack results. A kaleidoscopic amplification of Chekhov's tragic comedy, each character is interpreted by multiple actors and through multiple translations in an athletic attempt to say one true thing.
In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward humor, this strange and compassionate new play asks how we address life's biggest questions when words fail us.
