Drugging The Peanut Gallery

You only thought you knew about Charles Schulz’s world of cheerful, dancing cartoon characters. Then, you watch Bert V. Royal’s play Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead and see that offstage, everything turned to shit. Snoopy offed his good buddy Woodstock after a rabies situation. And in typical child-star, where-are-they-now fashion, the other kids, well, they kind of went off the deep end in their teenage years, living lives full of sex and drugs — all to Schroeder’s classical soundtrack. In this unauthorized Peanuts parody, teen angst has turned Sally into a goth, Linus into a pothead, Peppermint Patty into a slut and Lucy into an institutionalized terror high on lithium — just a side effect of setting the Little Red-Haired Girl’s weave on fire. See what life serves up to our childhood friends as the up-and-coming talent of KD College present Dog Sees God at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday at KD College, 2600 Stemmons Freeway, Suite 117. Tickets are $15, $8 for students. Call 214-747-5515 or visit undermain.org.
