Play Notes

× ****DISCLAIMER!: While The Commandment deals with difficult subject matter including blasphemy, suicide, mental illness and homelessness, it is ultimately a comedic story of hope. It is unlike anything you would normally see on our stage and for that very reason, we encourage you to come and see it for yourself. Told by an incredibly passionate and engaging performer, the story brings you on a journey of overcoming profound challenges. You may want to bring a tissue – but you’re also in for a good laugh and a lasting feeling of hope before the house is up!

Thomas is using a public restroom. He is surprised when God starts talking to him from the next stall and tells him that he has been selected to deliver a new commandment to mankind. There’s one big problem, though: Thomas is an atheist. His belief structure shattered, Thomas embarks on a journey he never wanted as he tries to deal with his new life as reluctant prophet. Today, Thomas is crashing an open mic night to tell his story. The Commandment is a solo dramatic comedy about loss, love and the pitfalls of visiting the john in the presence of the almighty.
