Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead

What: An “unauthorized parody,” the play reimagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as degenerate teenagers. The show disguises the identity of each character so that the issues of the play draw more focus than attempting to guess “who’s who.” However, the use of these famous characters is what gives the show its emotional punch: even these beloved child characters must someday grow up and deal with a harsh reality as they find their place in the world.

When: Tuesday, November 6 to Friday, November 9, 2018
Time: 8 pm
Where: Caravel Craft Brewery – 10221 15 Street Northeast, Calgary
