“Dog Sees God”
May 29-June 8 | Hutchinson Hall, Cabaret Theater
When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burned 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 him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with a long-lost friend offers CB peace of mind and sets in motion a chain of events that pushes the characters’ numerous identity crises to their very limits. More info.
