Hand to God Opens Friday 9/20!

Dreamwell Theatre presents “Hand to God” by Robert Askins, directed by Grant Freeman at Public Space One, (120 N. Dubuque St., Iowa City in the basement of the Wesley Center) 7:30pm Sept. 20, 21, 27 & 28 . Tickets can be reserved at our tickets page. “Hand to God” is a dark comedy described as an “irreverent puppet comedy about a possessed Christian-Ministry Puppet.” 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 dangerous personality all its own. “Hand to God” explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us. This play contains vulgar language, sexual content, and devilish puppets. Cast: Jason/Tyrone – Zach Vig Jessica/Jolene – Melissa Kaska Margery – Eva Giacomo Timmy – Colin Mattox Pastor Greg – Jeremy...
