Fresh from a critically-acclaimed run Off-Broadway comes a lightning-paced comedy about a Texas town's Christian Puppet Ministry...and one of its shockingly foul-mouthed sock puppets. More…
This comedy is about shy, inquisitive student Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. That is until his hand puppet Tyrone — once soft-spoken — takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.
