In the mood for some serious teenage angst? Roseville’s Alternative Arts Collective (home of the edgiest theater you’ll find in the burbs) is bringing The Perks of Being a Wallflower to the stage for an ultrashort run this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Based on one of the most frequently censored young-adult books, Wallflower is based on a series of letters that the narrator, Charlie, writes to an unknown person describing his life. It includes all sorts of pop-culture references, plus a number of American literature’s greatest hits. The play is not recommended for audiences under 15, and is in the Royer Arts Center in Royer Park, 190 Park Drive in Roseville. A donation is requested at the door. For more information, call (916) 538-8013.
