      HAND TO GOD

      When the puppets – and puppeteers – of the Tony-nominated HAND TO GOD take to the stage November 8 – 17 as the 12th season opener for Dezart Performs, it’s definitely not Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

      “Imagine Sesame Street in a mashup with The Exorcist, and you’ve got the flavor of this hilarious but very-much-for-adult audiences play,” said Michael Shaw founding artistic director for Dezart Performs. “You’ll laugh for sure, but leave the kids at home. It’s a dark but dishy comedy.”

      After the death of his father, meek Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door, and—most especially—his mother, are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. The result: a play “so ridiculously raunchy, irreverent and funny it’s bound to leave you sore from laughing. Ah, hurts so good.” (New York Daily News)

      Fridays, November 8 & 16, 7:30pm; Saturday, November 9 & 16, 2pm and 7:30pm; Sundays, November 10 & 17, 2pm.
