Not suitable for children

Winner of the off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Play and nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

In the tiny, conservative town of Cypress, Texas, the shy, mild-mannered Jason is just trying to be a good son. When he joins his mother Margery’s Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church, Jason discovers a burgeoning talent for puppetry, and after his father’s sudden death it seems like things might just turn out okay. Tyrone the puppet, though, has other plans. As the foul-mouthed, independent, and devilishly funny Tyrone grows in strength, Jason’s complex relationships with the school bully, the girl-next-door, and most importantly, his mother, are thrown into upheaval.

I have already seen Everyman’s Hand to God and am going a second time, that’s how good this production is. Way-out, a bit obscene, VERY irreverent and hysterically funny. I have never enjoyed a night in the theatre so much, unless it was The Play That Went Wrong.
