DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD
written by Bert V. Royal, directed by Lori B. Leigh
Words on Trees is seeking actors age 18-30 (4 females and 4 males) for their upcoming production of the dark comedy.
DOG SEES GOD won the coveted Excellence Award for Best Overall Production at the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival. This will be the New Zealand premiere of this hit play. DOG SEES GOD will rehearse in July and be performed in Wellington at BATS Theatre with a season running from 3 August to 14 August.
When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. 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.
