We thought it was terrible...we actually left in the middle, which I have never done before! I viewed other theater's performances of this play on YouTube, but unfortunately, the Atlanta performance was not the same, and very poor by comparison....continued

Not what I expected at all. I ended up with so much more. The intimate setting enhanced my experience. I laughed, I cried, I thought. It is a brand new take on the characters we grew up with as they've grown up into seemingly dysfunctional yet...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“A welcome antidote to the notion that the Peanuts gang provides merely a slice of American cuteness.” -The New York Times
“_Dog Sees God _doesn’t feel like the same old high-school-warfare schlock. The characters - teenage and reckless — are both genuinely sympathetic and unquestionably cruel. Growing more hysterical — and more harrowing — as it flows to an inevitable, uncomfortable end, this taut comedy manages to make tired clichés about stoners and popular homecoming airheads funny and endearing." —New York magazine


Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is Bert V. Royal’s slightly irreverent yet poignant “unauthorized parody” of the beloved Peanuts characters. In this hysterical comedy we see the characters imagined as hormonal teenagers with some serious issues. When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out 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. 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,’s 2006 Audience Award for Favorite Off-Broadway Production and the 2006 HX Award for Best Play.
