The right hand of the play's main character, Jason, was covered by a sock puppet named "Tyrone"
Those two get into much trouble as members of a Lutheran church's puppet theater. Tyrone scorched our ears off with non-stop profanity as death, sex, and religions played into the mix.
In this scene the play's characters are planning a puppet exorcism.
"Hand To God" is directed by the theater's artistic director, Joe Adler. He will be Coconut Grove's hero when he leads the Grove's playhouse out of the wilderness. It's a challenging task that's gone on for years.
The hilarious play ends its successful run with performances at the GableStage at 2 and 7 p.m. today. Their intimate, 200-seat venue is located on the east end of the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, 1200 Anastasia Avenue. For more information go to www.gablestage.org .
Keep in mind the play is not for the faint-eared. It is packed with raunch, sex, and irreverence. If that's sounds good, GO!
It's the last production of the season. GableStage begins its 2016-17 run next month.
We look forward to the time when Joe brings theatrical magic back to Coconut Grove.
