BWW Review:  ROBERT ASKINS' HAND TO GOD-BOLDLY GOES WHERE YOUR CHILDRENS' PUPPET SHOW Photo BWW Review: ROBERT ASKINS' HAND TO GOD-BOLDLY GOES WHERE YOUR CHILDRENS' PUPPET SHOW NEVER SHOULD GO at JOBSITE THEATER
by Drew Eberhard - Mar 2, 2021

ED WARREN: “The devil exists. God exists. And for us, as people, our very destiny hinges on which we decide to follow.”- from the 2013 film, THE CONJURING While preparing to see the irreverent and shockingly funny Hand to God, I did not know what to expect. I did however know going in that this is the absolute perfect play for Jobsite Theater to tackle, as I feel that no other theater company in the bay-area could tackle its humor more effortlessly than what the fine folks at Jobsite have accomplished. Robert Askins' foreword in the script says it best, “...this is a blueprint. It is a suggestion. It is a speech bubble in a long conversation. It is an invitation to play.” Jobsite hit their mark with this blueprint and has etched in our memories a ballsy, hilarious, and heartbreaking spectacle that is a provocative piece of unabashed panoramic-thrusted vulgarity and humanity that I will soon not forget.

Copious Love Productions Premieres THE FOG MACHINE PLAY
by Alexa Criscitiello - Feb 22, 2017

No matter how bad your day is, or what life events may be pushing you around and making you feel trapped- oh so trapped, so unbearably trapped- you know that would all change if you were given the opportunity to run through a room full of theatrical fog. We are changing people's lives. And by people we mean you. And by Lives, we mean fog. And by you, we mean Machine." While this show may not give you that exact opportunity, it will be close!
