ACT(S) OF GOD

ACT(S) OF GOD

February 13–March 31, 2019

Written by Ensemble Member Kareem Bandealy
Directed by Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman

Three siblings, two parents, and one very unexpected dinner guest.

As a family gathers for an overdue dinner, a mysterious envelope arrives with astonishing news. They soon find themselves scrambling to welcome a visitor of cosmic proportion. Absurdity reigns as ancient fissures open wide, long-held certainties crumble, and sh*t gets real. Will this nuclear family explode?

Lookingglass Ensemble Member Kareem Bandealy unleashes this existential dark comedy, directed by Artistic Director Heidi Stillman (Cascabel, Hard Times).
