University of the  Fraser Valley (UFV) theatre students have formed a new theatre company.

Coup d’ État Theatre was created with the mandate of producing thought provoking shows aimed towards a young adult audience.

Their debut performance of Bert V. Royal’s award winning show, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, will be performed on Friday, May 6 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 7 at 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Chilliwack campus theatre, 45635 Yale Rd.

It is a coming of age story about a 17 year-old boy who, after the death of his dog, begins to question how to live his life.

The show is not suitable for children under 14.

Tickets are $10 at the door. For more information, look up Coup d’ État Theatre on Facebook.
