WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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.
