Hand to God Mar 31 - Apr 30, 2017  
Suzanne Roberts Theatre Hand to God
 
A big hit with both audiences and critics, Hand to God centers around the young students of a Texas Christian Puppet Ministry. Taught to obey the Bible in order to evade "Satan's hand," things take a darkly comic turn when one devout young man's puppet takes on a shocking personality that no one could have expected. His demented puppet, Tyrone, soon teaches those around him that idle hands truly are the Devil's playthings. Described by The New Yorker as "Sesame Street meets The Exorcist," this Philadelphia Theatre Company production of the hilariously twisted sock puppet comedy possesses the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. This show contains adult language and content.
