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.

The cast for the production includes Zoe Lyons(‘Mock The Week’ and ‘Celebrity Masterchef’) as God, Matt Tedford as Michael and Tom Bowen (Johnny Castle in ‘Dirty Dancing the Musical’) as Gabriel.

David Javerbaum, winner of eleven Emmy Awards for his writing of TV’s ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’, was the first person to convert a Twitter account into a Broadway smash-hit, and has tailored his comic play to feature bespoke material for a British audience.

An Act of God originally premiered on Broadway at Studio 54 in 2015, starring Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper in’The Big Bang Theory’) as God. The show returned to Broadway for a second season in 2016 at the Booth Theatre starring Sean Hayes (Jack in TV’s ‘Will & Grace’).

An Act of God continues to play at The Vaults until the 12th January.
