Everything the playwright has to offer lands with resonance as well as audacity. And, under Matthew Wright’s sleight-of-hand direction, even the dropping of f-bombs is raised to an art form. His actors offer a masterclass in balancing horror with humor, vulnerability with vulgarity, and playing impertinence with a straight face.To see a full review of this show, read Bob Abelman's blog here.
“Hand to God” is a brilliant production, and places a spotlight on lost people caught up in their inabilities to cope with grief and abandonment. In fascination, we watch as these people lose healthy reality, replace it with abject pain, interspersing horror with laughter. This must-see staging, has to be one of the highlights of this theater season!
The ensemble performances are quite adept. But it is Wehner’s star turn as the man with the devil stuck on the end of his arm that steals the show and is worth the price of admission.

...Director Matthew Wright and his fine-tuned cast wring the comic profanity and real pathos from Robert Askins' script...The undisputed star of the show is Tyrone, voiced and manipulated with such skill and ease by [actor Luke] Wehner, you'll find yourself forgetting the two are one...enjoy the wickedly entertaining puppet show."
