‘Hand to God’ opens June 7

By on May 30, 2018

“Hand to God,” a play by Robert Askins, will be staged at Ephrata Performing Arts Center June 7 through 16.

“Hand to God” is a dark comedy about a young man who joins a Christian puppet ministry to help with his anxiety after the death of his father. It helps all right, but not in the way that he or his mother had hoped. Jason may be timid, but his puppet, Tyrone, is certainly not.

Tyrone is rude, irreverent, dangerous, and not afraid to say all of the things that Jason knows he shouldn’t say to his mother, the bully, and the girl next door. Something like this shouldn’t happen in a small town like Cypress, Texas! Is the puppet possessed, or is Jason losing his grip on his sanity?

The show, recommended for adult audiences, was a 2015 Tony Award Best Play nomination.

Tickets can be purchased at ephrataperformingartscenter.com or by calling 717-733-7966 x1.
