Edgefield Underground to stage 'Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead'

Joe Woodward plays the character CB in the play Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.

Edgefield Underground will present its first production – Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead – at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, and Saturday, Feb. 22, at 405 Main St. in downtown Edgefield.

The play, written by Bert V. Royal, is a satire of the Peanuts comic strip characters.

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; and other friends are no help.

Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.

Tickets are $18. The show contains adult themes and language and children under 12 will not be seated; ages 12-17 must be accompanied by an adult. For tickets, call (803) 637-3833.
