Hand to God

by Robert Askin

June 22, 2018 – July 15, 2018

Described as “Sesame Street meets The Exorcist” by The New Yorker, this dark comedy follows the God-fearing children of Cypress, Texas who spend their after-school hours practicing Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church. When one devout young boy discovers that his hand puppet has a life of its own, all hell breaks loose.  Literally.  In this sidesplitting and lightning-paced comedy, a satanic sock puppet named Tyrone shows the children, minister, and school bully who’s really in charge.
