Synopsis


God is back ... and she has a lot to say!


After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (award-winning comedian Zoe Lyons as seen on Mock The Week and Celebrity Masterchef) assisted by her devoted angels Gabriel (Matt Tedford, aka 'Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho') and Michael (Tom Bowen, Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing the Musical) will answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since creation.


In this very alternative Christmas message, An Act of God sees a dissatisfied deity, weary of the original Ten Commandments, delivering a new version: a fresh set of rules for the modern world.


This sinfully funny comedy delivers a new meaning to divine intervention as The "One" gives the first and last word on everything mankind has wrought on the planet.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: 12+


An Act of God, written by former The Daily Show with Jon Stewart writer David Javerbaum, was twice a smash hit on Broadway (starring Jim Parsons, Sheldon Cooper in the TV sitcom The Big Bang Theory, and Sean Hayes, Jack in Will and Grace).


For this European premiere, Javerbaum has rewritten the play to feature bespoke material for Zoe Lyons and a British audience.


He also continues to run the controversial Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod, through which God shares thoughts on world events with over six million followers.
