His parents don't understand him, his brother torments him, he has no friends, and he's more interested in the high school quarterback than any girl.

Before long, Franklin is convinced that only by going on the show will his life be redeemed - by Dr. Cerberus himself! All performances are recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.

by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2010

BWW Reviews: DOCTOR CERBERUS Explores the (Funny) Horrors of Teen Life
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 27, 2010

In South Coast Repertory's truly excellent World Premiere play DOCTOR CERBERUS (with performances continuing through May 2), playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa takes us back to the mid-1980's to witness the witty coming-of-age tale of one young awkward teen who is just a tad smarter than his years will allow. This, like in all misfits, causes him to be quite anguished by the very nature of his uniqueness in the world. Factor in a standard-issue dysfunctional family that can't quite understand him, and you have the makings of a winning narrative that has plenty of laughs, pathos and enough poignant moments that has us rooting for our hero to make it through to the end unscathed. Growing up different is scary. More broadly, life itself is scary.
