Creative Loafing Best of the Bay
Jobsite presents the “unauthorized parody” that features America’s favorite cartoon gang 10 years after the events of their 50-year old comic strip with the darkly comic and poignant Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.
When CB’s dog dies from rabies, he begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too stoned 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.
In 2004, Dog Sees God was one of the breakout hits at the New York International Fringe Festival, winning the Excellence Award for Best Overall Production, as well as Theatermania’s Play Award of 2004, the GLAAD Media Award for Best Off-Off-Broadway production, Broadway.com’s 2006 Audience Award for Favorite Off-Broadway Production and the 2006 HX Award for Best Play.
