The Transition of Doodle Pequeño

It's Halloween in Southern California, the Santa Ana winds blow fiercely and nothing is as it seems.  This multiple award-winning play for all ages is about two young boys who become friends in spite of their differences. It examines the consequences of misused language, provides insight into the lives of Mexican-immigrant children and interrogates the issues of gender-identity and homophobic bullying.

“Dean's script is overall incredibly smart, effective, memorable, and honest... he's created a distinct work akin to a modern Long Day's Journey Into Night with a peppering of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? If work like this continues, Gabriel Jason Dean is sure to be thought of as a great modern American playwright.”
