DOG SEES GOD
PRESENTED BY: DES MOINES YOUNG ARTISTS' THEATRE
When CB's dog dies from rabies, he 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 any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of the 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.

“After summer camp, she spent a lot of time developing plays with her friends. She was interested before, but now she thinks she’s a director and an actress and ... just anything.”
