Hand To God
- By Robert Askins
“The casting is so impressive and the direction is so damn good, the production doesn’t just elevate its source material, it transcends it” —The Georgia Straight
“It's ferociously funny, outrageously vulgar... the hottest play of the season” —The Vancouver Sun
“Uproarious laughter, shock, and sometimes sheer horror...the show to see this spring” —Inside Vancouver
"Castillo is remarkable as Jason/Tyrone...[he] switches back and forth seamlessly" —colinthomas.ca
"A robust and raw and raucous riot...you won't want to miss the ride" —BrokenLeg Reviews
"Very, very funny... another summer hit" —Vancouver Presents
“Over-the-top hilarious” —Daily Hive
"Thought provoking material. Hilariously representation of evil. Masterful puppetry! Excellent acting. Very interesting depiction of depression after loss and the consequences thereof. Well done!"
"Although verging on theatre of the absurd, the play and its production were excellent and expertly realized from sets through direction to the cast's performances. The audience was obviously totally involved and delighted. Well done!"
"I found this play brilliantly disturbing in its content, challenging and utterly hysterical. I love content that skews toward edgier, darker elements of the human condition but done in this playful manner made it very accessible. The performers where outstanding."
"Fantastic performances by all the actors and clever special effects make this rude, funny and thought-provoking production a MUST SEE!!"
"Cutting edge theatre. Most established companies would not explore such interesting work. Thank you for being daring."
–Doug, North Vancouver
"I was surprised to see a work of this genre at the Arts Club, it is far more challenging than the more traditional fare the theatre is typically known for. Thanks for getting edgy on the west side!"
