“Hand to God”, on at the Alex Theatre, tells of a de­monic sock pup­pet that wreaks havoc on re­la­tion­ships and faith in a small Texas town. Some­thing dev­il­ish is lurk­ing in a church base­ment pup­pet show in Cy­press, Texas. His name is Ty­rone. He may look like an in­no­cent sock pup­pet, but when he in­fil­trates the angst-rid­den church youth group and takes pos­ses­sion of Ja­son’s arm, all hell breaks loose.

Spec­tac­u­larly foul-mouthed and wickedly scan­dalous, Ty­rone shocks the con­gre­ga­tion with his ou­tra­geous in­sin­u­a­tions, ex­pos­ing their deep­est se­crets— and teach­ing us all about love, grief and what it means to be hu­man. Stars of the show in­clude Gy­ton Grant­ley, Ali­son Whyte, Grant Piro, Jake Speer and Mor­gana O’reilly.
