Welcome to the Dollhouse: The Peaches Experiment
By: Dan Rosenbaum
SF Sketchfest and Peaches Christ Productions once again join forces to bring a unique film celebration to the Castro. Todd Solondz’s darkly hysterical film, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, follows eleven-year-old Dawn Wiener, a middle child in middle school in the middle of New Jersey. Sometimes hated, often reviled, seldom understood, Dawn tries in vain to put on a happy face as she struggles through the onset of what looks to be a long puberty. The Peaches pre-show will feature musical numbers and other surprises and a special onstage conversation with the star of the film, “Dawn Wiener” herself, Heather Matarazzo.
What: Welcome to the Dollhouse: The Peaches Experiment
When: February 8 at 7 PM
Where: Castro Theatre
