Oh, God

By Anat Gov | Directed by Michael Bloom
Featuring Mitchell Hébert (as God) and Kimberly Schraf
At the Atlas Performing Arts Center, Lang Theatre
Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival

In this witty and touching play, a psychotherapist named Ella, single mother of an autistic child, gets a visit from a new and desperate patient:  God. The late Anat Gov was known as Israel’s Wendy Wasserstein, and in her gently veiled analogy, Ella and God must learn to help each other–after all, God is suffering from having accrued too much power, while Ella has lost whatever faith (in God) she might have had. As both battle low-grade depression, the fate of the world may just hang in the balance! With a clash of biblical quotes framed by a modern-day wit, Gov brings a funny, often brilliant text that forces us to confront our own issues of faith, hubris, and the overwhelming power of humility.

“A funny, witty, poignant, often brilliant text that asks intriguing questions about the nature of the Deity and our relationship to Him, all in a delightful 80 minutes.” – The Jerusalem Post
