Prologue Theatre Begins Their Second Season With DOG SEES GOD
Where do we look to find ourselves? The three plays in Prologue Theatre's second season explore this question beginning with Bert V. Royal's DOG SEES GOD: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. In this DARK comedy, personal identity, drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
"In this production, we are focusing on the more gritty and realistic sides of these characters' lives. The 'comedy' is still there, but this is not a parody of the famous Peanuts characters," said Director, and Prologue Theatre Founding Artistic Director, Jason Tamborini. "We are focusing on the reality of the issues these characters face in the play; they are not necessarily more prevalent today, but they are more visible."
A core element of Prologue's mission is dedicated to using productions as a way to begin conversations. The conversations during this production will cover the topics of personal identity, bullying, seeking help, and moving forward in times of crisis.
