Starring: Tom Clarke, Hannah Banks, Amy Tarleton, Jack Buchanan, Peter Hambleton

Puppets by: Jon Coddington

Sex, sin and one twisted sock puppet. The most produced play in America right now.

“Sesame Street meets The Exorcist.” - The New Yorker

Hand to God is a thrill ride of a comedy about good and evil, sex and sin, faith and the filthy mind of one twisted sock puppet.

In a church basement in a little town in Texas, something evil is afoot. Or, well - at hand. The youth group has a monster in its ranks: a rogue puppet named Tyrone. He’s hijacked the hand of timid teen Jason and there’s nothing his classmates, his mother, or the pastor can do to exorcise this foul-mouthed demon.

As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us. Like nothing you’ve seen before, this Tony Award-Nominated Broadway hit is a ruthless comedy about sex, sinners, and sock puppets.

Warning: Content may offend. Not suitable for children.

Don’t miss the New Zealand premiere of the uproarious Tony Award-Nominated Broadway hit on stage during the NZ Comedy Festival.

Cast includes:
- Tom Clarke (Winner of Best Male Newcomer at the 2016 Wellington Theatre Awards for Devil’s Half-Acre by Trick of the Light Theatre).

- Hannah Banks (Winner of Outstanding Performance at the 2014 Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards for Watch at BATS Theatre).

- Amy Tarleton (The ACB With Honora Lee, Hedda Gabler, Seed)
- Jack Buchanan (Peer Gynt [recycled], Jekyll & Hyde, The Mystery of Edwin Drood)
- Peter Hambleton (The Hobbit trilogy, Joyful & Triumphant, The Biggest)

“Flat-out hilarious!” - New York Times
“A maliciously delicious black comedy.” - The Washington Post
“Outlandish, unpretentious, R-rated craziness.” - Chicago Tribune
"Theatre for the YouTube Generation.” - Daily Telegraph
