Snoopy died of rabies, Pig-pen is now a germaphobe, and if you don’t appreciate the irony then you obviously weren’t a fan of the Peanuts comic strip. If you were, it’s time to rejoin Charlie Brown and the gang as they navigate the rough path to puberty. No character is safe in this unauthorized, off-Broadway play, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.
Linus is a pothead, Lucy is a pyro, Sally is Wiccan, and Charlie Brown (Michael Brindley) is going through his own heap of troubles. Sally (Georgia Brindley) is particularly amusing as she not only struggles to find herself, but to perfect her hilarious, ‘one woman show.’
Humor and sadness mix with the raw emotions of hormone-riddled teenagers. The weight of prejudices, selfishness, and the struggle to find one’s identity are explored throughout. The actors take the stage with enthusiasm and the cozy room of the King Street Theatre brings an intimate setting. You’ll feel pulled back to the schoolyard, as the actors tackle the issues of growing up, and the pain in shedding the innocence of youth.
Join CB and the gang as they scrape through adolescence in Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. Now playing at the King Street Theatre, August 22-26. For bookings visit their website: www.kingstreettheatre.com.au.
