HAND TO GOD, Starring Harry Melling, to Close Early in the West End
The West End engagement (which follows runs off-Broadway and on Broadway) officially opened at the Vaudeville Theatre on February 15 and was supposed to play until June 11. After previously shortening its run by a week, the show will now take its last bow on April 30.
Tony Award-nominated Playwright Robert Askins goes for the jugular in this hilarious and provocative semi-autobiographical story with:
One dead father, One messed up family, One girl who just wants to help, One school bully who always gets his own way, One man of the church offering comfort. And one Hand puppet called Tyrone who is completely out of control - Tyrone's shocking, dangerous and taking no prisoners.
HAND TO GOD explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us. Beneath Tyrone's crude jokes and vulgarity, however, do we hear an element of truth? This new play brings Tyrone to life in a refreshingly witty and brutally honest show, causing us to question whether there is something of Tyrone in all of us...something we would rather remain hidden?
