Announcing our upcoming co-production

HAND TO GOD

HAND TO GOD by Robert Askins
direction by Gary C. Hopper
July 13 – 28, 2018 at The Basement

After the death of his father, meek Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door, and—most especially—his mother, are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. HAND TO GOD explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us. Co-produced by 5th Wall Theatre and TheatreLAB.

“[HAND TO GOD is] flat-out hilarious, spewing forth acid comedy that will turn those goose bumps into guffaws.” – The New York Times

“Furiously funny…Askins’ most impressive talent is his ability to make us laugh while juggling those big themes that make life so terrifying: death, depression, alcoholism, sexual guilt, emotional repression, religious hypocrisy and the eternal battle between your good puppet and your bad puppet.” – Variety

“HAND TO GOD is so ridiculously raunchy, irreverent and funny it’s bound to leave you sore from laughing. Ah, hurts so good.” – New York Daily News
