I adore provocative, in your face theatre and the collaborative production of HAND TO GOD by 5th Wall and TheatreLab is ALL that and more!

The plot revolves around Jason and his mother, Margery and how they are coping with the loss of their respective father/husband through a puppet ministry at their church. Sounds innocent enough but when Adam’s puppet turns demonic and Margery lets down her guard things get WILD!

The cast is amazing! Adam Turck (Jason/Tyrone, the puppet) has mastered the art of the rapid fire character switch. Adam Valentine (Timmy) is sublime as the teenager with a MILF crush. Anne Michell Forbes (Jessica/Jolene) milks the most out of her short stage time and also does the incredible puppet character switch thing. Kimberly Jones Clark (Margery) is a badass at playing these naughty girl types. Fred Iacovo (Pastor Greg) Um, a little over the top for my taste. (Ouch. Sorry, Fred, I love you as a person.)

Gary Hopper’s direction is so flawless in this show that one might wonder if he was possessed by a mysterious power himself.

This is a play for people who like dark comedy and serious social satire. No weenies allowed.

If you haven’t seen this show – lucky for you it has been extended.
