“To free the voice is to free the person…”- Kristin Linklater “Success is transient, evanescent. The real passion lies in the poignant acquisition of knowledge about all the shading and subtleties of the creative secrets.” – Konstantin Stanislavski “The technique of any art is sometimes apt to dampen, as it were, the spark of inspiration in a mediocre artist; but the same technique in the hands of a master can fan that spark into an unquenchable flame” -Josef Jasser “Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art.”– Konstantin Stanislavski

DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD

By Bert V. Royal

Directed By: Liisa Yonker

   

Shadowbox Theatre

   

Ten years after we last left Charles M. Schulz’s characters, we find Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang all grown up and struggling with many of the social problems and issues that confront teens today.  Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
