After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (award-winning comedian Zoe Lyons as seen on Mock The Week and Celebrity Masterchef) assisted by her devoted angels Michael (Matt Tedford, aka ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho’) and Gabriel (Tom Bowen, Johnny Castle in ‘Dirty Dancing the Musical’) will answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since creation.
In this very alternative Christmas message, An Act of God sees a dissatisfied deity, weary of the original Ten Commandments, delivering a new version: a fresh set of rules for the modern world. This sinfully funny comedy delivers a new meaning to divine intervention as The “One” gives the first and last word on everything mankind has wrought on the planet.
An Act of God takes a comedic look at the current state of the world and religion and gives God a chance to present their renewed 10 commandments. It’s a show that is full of humour and sass in equal measures. Zoe Lyons is a fabulous fit for the camp, yet angry role of God in this play-come-stand-up routine and her angel sidekicks provide the voice of the audience.
Magic is used throughout the show to allow the audience to bear witness to the power of God in a way that genuinely surprises the audience and add to the overall fun feeling of the performance. It’s a show which is current, cutting and laugh out loud funny throughout.
