About Hand to God

The “darkly delightful” (The New York Times), blasphemous Broadway hit that has been taking the country by storm, Hand to God, makes its regional debut at WaterTower Theatre! Texas native Robert Askins thrusts us into a surreal church basement, where a young man’s foul-mouthed hand puppet--that may be possessed by the devil--wreaks havoc and exposes hypocrisy with ruthlessness and side-splitting humor. Director Joanie Schultz's long-running hit production of Hand to God (Studio Theatre) was nominated for six Helen Hayes Awards including Best Director!

“This show is completely immersive and will leave you insanely entertained” (DC Theatre Scene).

WARNING- This show contains mature content, mature language, and brief puppet nudity.


General seating - Sit wherever you like.

Take advantage of our fully-immersive experience of Hand to God... plus, you'll get to make your own sock puppet!

Enter the space as early as 40 minutes before curtain, grab a drink at the bar, sit wherever you like, create a devilishly handsome sock-puppet of your own! The choice is yours!

Check out the scenic design below to best plan your own unique viewing experience:

  1. Watch the show from our traditional purple seats, or
  2. Find a table, make a sock puppet, and watch the show from the center of it all!

We leave it up to you, our audience, to choose the type of immersive experience that you are most comfortable with.
