Community College of Baltimore County Presents Robert Askins' HAND TO GOD
Community College of Baltimore County Performing Arts opens its academic theatre season with Hand to God Oct. 17 in the Studio Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard.
Shy, inquisitive student Jason finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the devoutly religious Christian Puppet Ministry, until his hand puppet Tyrone takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone's influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.
Performance times include:
· 11:10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 17.
· 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 17, 18 and 19
· 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 (ASL interpreted for the deaf and hard-of-hearing)
· 10 a.m. Monday, Oct 21
· 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, Oct 22
