Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal is a play about a teenage boy, CB, who begins to question the existence of an afterlife after his dog dies. Unable to find solace from his friends after his dog's death, CB turns to an artistic classmate, but their rekindled friendship pushes the bounds of what CB's friends are willing to accept, forcing CB to consider who he wants to be. Dog Sees God is a touching and thought-provoking play about being different in a school filled with people who all pretend to be the same.

When Mike and Elaine each call a car to get to their blind date, they find themselves paired with the weirdest drivers on the road, from a "semi-licensed" therapist, to a thief engaged in a high-speed chase, to a rapper more concerned with sharing her original music than obeying the rules of the road. Will Mike and Elaine make it to their date on time? With drivers like these, they'll be lucky to get there at all!

The Maids

By Jean Genet

Tue., Feb. 23–Sat., Feb. 27, 7:30 p.m.
Kennedy Auditorium

Inspired by an actual murder case, “The Maids” shows the title characters, Solange and Claire, entertaining violent and sometimes sadomasochistic fantasies about murdering their employer.  It is difficult to tell exactly what is ritual, what is hallucination and what is reality, but the critique of power and its manifestations, especially in terms of socio-economic class, is tangible.  Recommended for mature audiences.

Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior/student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
