The Big Deal: WaterTower Theatre’s ‘Hand To God’

by Zoee Acosta 25 Jul 2018 8:31 AM

Public piety and seething lust, family dysfunction and repressed anxiety interact with explosive results in Robert Askin’s “Hand to God.”  WaterTower Theatre will present the black comedy about a Christian puppet ministry in suburban Texas. With wildly imaginative flair, playwright Askins thrusts us into an almost surreal world where hand puppets, meant to impart moral lessons, take on frightening lives of their own. With a theatrical magic that makes puppets seem real and immediate as human actors, this immersive production will have audiences holding up a mirror to their deepest fears and imperfect natures, all with side-splitting laughter. Sign up for a chance to win two tickets to see the August 10th performance at the Addison Conference and Theatre Centre.
