In the tiny, conservative town of Cypress, Texas, the shy, mild-mannered Jason is just trying to be a good son. When he joins his mother Margery's Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church, Jason discovers a burgeoning talent for puppetry, and it seems like things after his father's sudden death might just turn out okay.
Tyrone the puppet, though, has other plans. As the foul-mouthed, independent, and devilishly funny Tyrone grows in strength, Jason's complex relationships with the school bully, the girl-next-door, and most importantly, his mother, are thrown into upheaval.
An irreverent, occasionally shocking, and perpetually hysterical romp to hell and back, Hand To God is an exploration of the ideas of faith, morality, and human nature that will leave audiences rolling in the aisles.
Plays at The Refinery - 609 Dufferin Ave. Saskatoon
Ppl r Ppl Productions is about.. PEOPLE. It's about telling stories that invite audiences to see things from a perspective somewhere outside their own backyards. We do our best to bring something fresh to Saskatoon's theatre scene, and we choose to produce works that we find exciting and engaging. We believe that something magical happens when the lights start to dim, the actors take their places, and the audience fastens their seatbelts.. Ppl r Ppl is proud to be celebrating their sixth season by participating in the Live Five Season with a show that's never been done here in Saskatoon!
