March 30 – April 15
Dog Sees God; Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
Comedy by Bert Royal; directed by Lori Benkert
Good Grief! Our favorite comic’s kids are now in high school. Bert Royal brings us all those teenage issues of today – drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity – which collide and careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.  Did we mention it’s a comedy?
R-Rated. Not for everyone.
