A staged reading of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's play, DR. CERBERUS, directed by Jim McCunn. In this coming-of-age comedy, 13-year-old Franklin Robertson is just trying to survive life in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. in the mid-1980s. He's overweight. He's sexually confused. He doesn't have friends. His overworked parents don't understand him. His jock older brother torments him nonstop. He'd rather write stories than go on dates (not that he could get a date). His great comfort comes from the Twinkies he eats and the horror movies he watches every Saturday night at midnight, on a black-and-white TV set in his basement, introduced by the horror host Dr. Cerberus. In fact, Franklin feels certain that Dr. Cerberus can save his misfit life…
