Unlike the diverse cast of characters in Garry Trudeau's seminal, generational-spanning strip, “Doonesbury,” Charles Shultz's “Peanuts” spent close to 50 years in relative agelessness. Linus was the philosopher with a security blanket; Lucy refused any kind of football-kicking; and Charlie Brown was a lovably insecure, balding 8-year-old. In his darkly tinged satire, “Dog Sees God: Confessions of Teeenage Blockhead,” playwright Bert Royal breaks out of this time-capsule portrayal, offering unauthorized, what-if glimpses into the troubled teenage years of these classic characters. Playing as part of this year's Acts of Faith Festival, “Dog Sees God” is scheduled to open at the Firehouse Theatre on Feb. 3, running through Feb. 26. $10-$25. 355-2001.  — Mike Hilleary
