When the Lord God is persuaded by His retainer and chief-cook-and-bottle-washer Gabriel to take an incognito holiday to a Devonshire seaside hotel (largely to get Him out from under His angels’ feet), He looks forward to a fortnight of uninterrupted tennis, billiards, tea on the terrace and the latest Agatha Christie. But the presence of campaigning atheist Professor ‘Minty’ Tweddle and her fiance, notoriously hard-to-please theatre critic Rex Addison, upsets His plans and leads to all manner of supernatural scrapes, japes and narrow escapes – as well as the invention of a hot new global dance craze.
Can our hero persuade Minty He really exists?
Can He solve the Problem of Evil before breakfast?
What exactly is Rex Addison up to?
Will Gabriel step in once more to save the Almighty’s bacon?
Find out the answers to these questions and all the mysteries of Creation in the new musical comedy Lord God, from best-selling author Philip Reeve and award-winning playwright and composer Brian Mitchell, whose previous collaborations include the recent sell-out stage adaptation of Pugs of the Frozen North and the acclaimed musical comedy The Ministry of Biscuits. Building on their reputation for thought-provoking comedy, Lord God takes a timely look at morality, faith, and why sometimes it is best not to take things too seriously.
Cast includes Joanna Neary (BBC2’s ‘Ideal’) and Ian Shaw (‘The Shark is Broken’).
