Loyola University Chicago Student Makes Directorial Debut with
Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, by Burt V. Royal, will open at Loyola University Chicago on Friday, November 12. Directed by sophomore theatre major Chris Thoren, this innovative adaptation of Charles Schulz’s beloved classic comic strip, Peanuts, re-imagines Charlie Brown and company as troubled teens struggling with the trials of the adult world: sexual abuse, the reality of death, and the obstacle of hatred-for both ourselves and one other. The production is presented as part of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts’ Second Stage theatre season, which provides a laboratory and venue for student-produced work.
The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required, but individuals can contact the Box Office at 773.508.3847 or BoxOffice@LUC.edu to place a reservation for advance seating.
