DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD
by Bert V. Royal
Left Coast Theatre Co. presents Bert V. Royal’s tough and tender “Dog Sees God,” a play about our favorite Peanuts characters and their rocky adolescence.
Aww shucks! When CB’s dog dies of rabies, he begins to have an existential crisis. When he turns to his friends for comfort, they don’t have much to offer: his sister has gone goth, his ex-girlfriend has been institutionalized, his best friend has anger management issues, and his other friends are too preoccupied with getting stoned, drunk, and laid. But when he starts a friendship with the artistic kid, bullied by his peers for being gay, CB finds answers he didn’t know he was looking for.
The title says it all! “Twisted Hitchcock” is an evening of hilarious and irreverent one-act plays that pay homage to the Master of Suspense himself. For much of his career, Alfred Hitchcock was inspired by San Francisco. And now we’re going to repay the favor. The suspense, the glamour….the mommy issues. Left Coast Theatre Co. presents an evening of parodies of three of Hitchcock’s masterpieces, all with an LGBTQ bent. You’ll laugh! You’ll scream! There might even be some nudity.
THE MORNING AFTER…
Left Coast Theatre Co. returns to its roots with “The Morning After...,” an anthology of original LGBTQ shorts by local and national playwrights. Much of our lives are defined by big events: weddings, funerals, breakups, proposals, birthdays, coming out. But sometimes it’s the morning after that really changes our lives. This collection of shorts showcases the hilarity, the joy, the grief, the angst, and the uncertainty of the morning after the big event.
