BWW Feature: HAND TO GOD at KC Arts Centre
Who knew a show about sock puppets could be an R18 show?
Apparently it can.
Written by Robert Askins, Hand to God has been described as "Sesame Street" meeting "The Exorcist". It has opened on Off-Broadway, before making its way to Broadway and the West End and now right here in the KC Arts Centre in Singapore.
Troubled teen, Jason, is coping with his father's recent death and is forced to join his mother, Margery, in her Sunday School puppet group. When this God-fearing boy discovers that his sock puppet, Tyrone, has a life of its own, all hell breaks loose. Literally.
Artistic Director of Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT), Gaurav Kripalani explains that he had read the script before it was produced anywhere in the world and thought that "this is the type of script that SRT should be doing." Directed by Guy Unsworth and starring a dynamic cast of Daniel Jenkins, Janice Koh, Ann Lek, Thomas Pang, Gavin Yap and a very, very bad puppet, this dark comedy sets to enthrall those with a wicked sense of humour and a stomach for a brutally honest reflection of life.
Hand to God opens on the 19th of April 2017 until 6th May 2017 at the KC Arts Centre, Singapore.
