About The Show

Running January 12th to 27th, 2019

Please join Eastline for the inaugural show of its 2019 Season, with the five-time, Tony Award nominated, including Best New Play, “Hand to God.”  

After the recent death of his father, painfully shy and withdrawn Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety through the Christian Puppet Ministry, in his devoutly religious, hometown of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the first girl who expresses any interest in him, and—most especially—his mother, are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, reveals a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. Nominated for five Tony Awards – including Best Play – this mature-themed comedy explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us, all to hilariously comic effect.

Reviews

“Furiously funny…Askins’ most impressive talent is his ability to make us laugh while juggling those big themes that make life so terrifying: death, depression, alcoholism, sexual guilt, emotional repression, religious hypocrisy and the eternal battle between your good puppet and your bad puppet.” —Variety.

 

“HAND TO GOD is so ridiculously raunchy, irreverent and funny it’s bound to leave you sore from laughing. Ah, hurts so good.” —New York Daily News.
