Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead

Benefit Show 2011

Bert V. Royal; Directed by Tim Long

When CB's dog dies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to help, his sister's gone goth, his ex-girlfriend is institutionalized, and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB some peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that is both haunting and hopeful.

The SPOT

The proceeds from this year's benefit show go to The SPOT, a group for LGBTQA youth in Chester County, whose mission is to provide an environment where they can feel accepted and empowered and where sexual and gender identity can be embraced without fear of violence, harassment, or judgment. The group promotes understanding and respect for all through education, support, advocacy, creative expression, and friendship.

The SPOT incorporates a mix of educational programs such as safer sex, coming out, marriage equality, and relationships with recreational activities like feature films, game nights, fun with food, video game competitions, as well as guest speakers and field trips. All activities take place in a safe, comfortable space designed by LGBTQA youth.
