In London’s (Off) West End 2019: James Seabright presents An Act of God at The Vaults (Preview)
LONDON – In the almighty words of Ariana Grande, God is a woman. And in James Seabright’s brand new production of An Act of God, well, that woman has a lot to say!
Directed by Benji Sperring and written by former The Daily Show with Jon Stewart writer David Javerbaum, the comedic An Act of God stars award-winning comedian Zoe Lyonsas (seen on Mock The Week and Celebrity Masterchef) as God herself, assisted by her devoted angels Gabriel (Matt Tedford, aka ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho’) and Michael (Tom Bowen, Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing the Musical), as they 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 was twice a smash hit on Broadway (starring Jim Parsons, Sheldon Cooper in the TV sitcom The Big Bang Theory, and Sean Hayes, Jack in Will and Grace). For this European premiere, Javerbaum has rewritten the play to feature new material for Zoe Lyons and a British audience. He also continues to run the controversial Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod, through which God shares thoughts on world events with over six million followers. This Christmas, there’s no better way to hear what God has to say than with An Act of God.
An Act of God runs from 27th November 2019 to 12th January 2020 at The Vaults. Tickets available here
