Hand to God

12:00AM $30

A puppet made from a grey sock, some fake red fur, and a bit of felt might not seem the stuff of evil, but meet Tyrone. This hilariously foul-mouthed puppet from Hell was the toast of Broadway last season as he took over the left hand of a hapless teenager and waged a reign of delightfully blasphemous terror among a group of young people planning a puppet show in a church basement in Texas. Now, Tyrone will make his regional debut in Columbus in this Tony-nominated comedy by Robert Askins.
  “Puppet practice combines with brilliant acting, direction and design for a nearly perfect production of “Hand to God” at the Short North Stage”—Columbus Dispatch
  “Hand to God is a show that will make an audience laugh until the walls creak and like all the best comedies has a core of poignancy. It’s hard to imagine a production of this provocative, intense play better than the one we’re lucky enough to have at Short North Stage. Whether you see a show a week or haven’t seen a play in five years, see this.”—Columbus Underground
“At once a grizzly thriller, a crazily hilarious puppet drama with nods to “Avenue Q” and a moving exploration of a young, churchgoing adult crying out for help, this piece is a horror shocker, good date-night fun for college kids, and a deeply compassionate work of theater about ordinary Americans struggling with loss and trying to find their way in the spiritual dark,”—Chicago Tribune.
“So ridiculously raunchy, irreverent and funny it’s bound to leave you sore from laughing”—New York Daily News.
