DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD
BY BERT V. ROYAL
Directed By: Chris Rivera & Bloo Rodriguez
Stage Manager: Emily Thaler

"Dear Pen Pal, I know it's been a few years since I last wrote you. I hope you're still there. I'm not sure you ever were."

After every Thursday and Saturday performance of The Bacchae, Queens Shakespeare will be presenting a special benefit performance of Burt V. Royal’s Dog sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. Half of all proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

Co-Directors Chris Rivera (Director of 2014’s critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet and our smash hit production of Julius Caesar earlier this season) and Bloo Rodriguez (Assistance Director of Julius Caesar and Assistant Director of The Secret Theater’s sellout production of Macbeth) take us back to a time in which millennials where called something different, high school students. A place where labels turn whole people into nothing more than their respective cliques: jock, bully, stoner, geek, and queer. Using the fashion and musical stylings of the late ‘90s/early 2000s and asking the question “what if the eternal children from the comics we read grew up?” provide the perfect vehicle for a flashback to a time where things should have been simple, but never were. A time where you were “different” in a school filled with people who all pretend to be the same.

About the Company: What Dreams May Co

What Dreams May Co. is dedicated to making the classics accessible to all. Simple, minimalistic productions leave the focus on the language and characters, challenging the actors in the company to reach new levels and expand their knowledge of the classics. Passionate performances delve to the heart of the text, bringing the story to life in a way that connects with and immerses modern audiences. After all, "What dreams may come, when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause." With our productions, we hope every person has a chance to experience that moment to pause, be touched by the beauty of the language, and carry that experience with them into the world.
