Dog Sees God Playwright Royal Directs I Dig Doug for Fringe Festival

News   Dog Sees God Playwright Royal Directs I Dig Doug for Fringe Festival Bert V. Royal, who saw his 2004 Fringe success Dog Sees God transfer Off-Broadway, will return to this year's festival, serving as director for the politically themed satire I Dig Doug.

Press notes state, "A teenager's world is turned upside down when she discovers the presidential election is the ultimate reality television. It's a journey that leads her from New York to Iowa, from MTV to C-Span, and from hot, young pop-stars to pot-bellied politicians." Written and performed by Karen DiConcetto (Dog Sees God, formerly of British pop sensation Daphne and Celeste) and Rochelle Zimmerman (NAATCO's House of Bernarda Alba), I Dig Doug will take part in the New York International Fringe Festival at the SoHo Playhouse Aug. 12-24.

Royal is a GLAAD Media Award winner for his play Dog Sees God, which he is currently adapting for a screen adaptation.
