An Act of God

An Act of God

By David Javerbaum
July 20 – August 4, with a $20 Preview on July 19

Sponsor: Mountain Lake PBS

The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight. After many millennia, God (assisted by devoted angels) will reveal the mysteries of the Bible and answer some of the greatest existential questions that plague mankind.

Filled with maximum humor and earthy reality, AN ACT OF GOD is based on a satirical book and the Twitter account of David Javerbaum, who has written for some of today’s hottest comedians, including Jon Stewart.

“Delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, as transcribed by the man we might call the Moses de nos jours, David Javerbaum, God is really killing it up there. How funny is the guy? He’s Jon Stewart funny, plus Stephen Colbert funny. (Mr. Javerbaum has written for both.)…Verily I could quote every other line from Mr. Javerbaum’s annotation of the Scriptures and gather a chuckle, so deliriously funny is he as a sort of amateur theologian and stand-up comedy genius rolled into one.” —The New York Times.

NOTE: This production is a one-act play, and includes material meant for mature audiences.
