As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock is back at The Vaults giving thanks to the Almighty herself for the European premiere of “sinfully funny” comedy An Act of God. Got any questions for creatives and cast?

What are you doing this Thanksgiving? This American expat will be spending it giving thanks to ‘god’ directly as I return to The Vaults for another in my myriad post-show Q&As for producer James Seabright.

God is back… and SHE has a lot to say! After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (award-winning comedian Zoe Lyons as seen on Mock The Week and Celebrity Masterchef) assisted by her devoted angels Gabriel (Tom Bowen) and Michael (Matt Tedford, aka ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho’) will 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.

“Divinely funny” – New York Times

“Wickedly irreverent… anarchic fun” – Hollywood Reporter

An Act of God, written by former The Daily Show with Jon Stewart writer David Javerbaum, 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 bespoke material for Zoe Lyons and a British audience. He also continues to run the controversial Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod, through which God shares his thoughts on world events with over six million followers. Benji Sperring directs the comedy’s European premiere.

After the 8pm performance (90 minutes) of An Act of God on Thursday 28 November 2019 (Thanksgiving!), I’ll talk to our heavenly mother Zoe Lyons, writer David Javerbaum, director Benji Sperring and the company. Any questions? Join us!
