Hand to God @ City Theatre - 09/29/2016 In a church basement in a little town in Texas, something evil is afoot. Or, well — at hand. A rogue puppet named Tyrone has hijacked the hand of timid teen Jason and there’s nothing his classmates, his mother, or the pastor can do to exorcise this foul-mouthed demon. Hand to God is a thrill ride of a comedy about good and evil, sex and sin, faith, and the filthy mind of one twisted puppet. Don’t miss the Pittsburgh premiere of the uproarious Tony Award® Nominated Broadway hit The New York Times calls “flat out hilarious.”  Hand to God is rated R for rude, raunchy, and riotously funny content. You’ve been warned. By Robert Askins Directed by Tracy Brigden PERSONS UNDER 30 x $15 advance tickets, excluding Fridays 8pm/Saturdays 5:30pm. x $15 rush tickets at the Box Office beginning two hours prior to show. x Tickets will be held at Will Call. Must present valid ID. One ticket per ID. [more]
