By now, you’ve probably heard - - these are not your ordinary cartoon misfits. This is a show that doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not just to be popular. DOG SEES GOD is raw and powerful and dirty. It's easy to get wrapped up in the offense, to be instantly transported back to the insanity of high school through extreme stereotypes that are admittedly cringeworthy - - and laughable. But it's through those often ugly visages, those moments of juvenile humor that a message of tolerance emerges. This has been the challenge in co-producing the show with Elise. Do we attempt to preemptively counter the offense or let the show stand on its own? Ultimately, we feel it does stand on its own. Audiences of all ages have told us they relate to these characters - - their insecurities, their need to be accepted, their longing for love - - and the sometimes painfully familiar ways they are trying to find their place in the world. Shows like this provide necessary dialogical avenues for topics that are often uncomfortable to discuss: bullying, homophobia, fatism, disordered eating, sexuality, violence, even suicide. But sometimes you have to get a little uncomfortable to discover what’s important. See the show. Bring a friend. Talk about it.
