When CB's (Charlie Brown) dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife with the rest of the Peanuts gang, in this play which builds on the foundation of Charles Schulz's iconic comic strip. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated 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 sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
