Calendar Notice for 'An Act of God' July 13 to August 4, 2018

NEW MILFORD, CONN. (June 14, 2018) – On Friday, July 13, TheatreWorks New Milford will open their next mainstage production of An Act of God, a new one act comedy by David Javerbaum. 

In this irreverent new comedy, God has taken corporeal form for only the second time in Christian history in order to correct mankind's dire misconceptions about His thinking and His works. The new comedy An Act of God reveals the mysteries of the Bible while answering the existential questions that have plagued mankind since Creation – in just 90 minutes.

"Javerbaum's radical rewrite of the Ten Commandments—the evening is structured around Go''s introduction of revised laws—is clever and even refreshingly positive, insisting on the separation of church and state and encouraging us to believe in ourselves, not some elderly white guy in the sky." —Time Out (New York).

This production is under the direction of Katherine Ray of Norwalk and the cast includes Matt Austin of New Milford (God), Suzanne Powers of New Haven (Gabriel) and Josh Newey of Canaan (Michael).

An Act of God runs Fridays and Saturdays from July 13 through Saturday August 4. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays, and 2:00 p.m. on the Sunday matinee on July 29. Tickets are $25 for reserved seating. Students and Military personnel with ID will be admitted for $20.00.

On Thursday, July 12th, Senior Citizens are invited to a free dress rehearsal at 8:00 p.m. Thursday July 19th at 8:00 p.m. is TheatreWorks' Pay-What-You-Want night where you name the price of your ticket.
