As of March 12, 2020: "God Help Us!” a new political comedy starring Ed Asner as God will not be held as scheduled on Sunday, April 5, 2020. Watch for this performance to return in July 2020!
The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is pleased to present “God Help Us!” a new political comedy starring Ed Asner as God on Sunday, April 5, 2020. The curtain will rise at 3 p.m. on this comedy that will satirize politicians from all parties at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill, located at 50400 Cherry Hill Road in Canton, MI, 49187.
GOD HELP US! is a play ripped from today’s headlines, an evening’s entertainment that is at once hilarious and thought provoking.
The plot centers on two pundits, Larry (a liberal lad) and Randi (a conservative gal), who find themselves confronted by GOD (the legendary Ed Asner), a wise, sarcastic, cantankerous and wildly funny character who is offended by what America’s political leaders have done to America. He has brought Randi and Larry to Purgatory for a lively debate about the issues our time. And whomever he finds more persuasive will get God’s “mighty thumb on the scale” in one or the other’s favor.
Audiences will learn that Randi and Larry were a couple back in their college days, but politics tore them apart – in large measure because they couldn’t learn how to disagree without being disagreeable. God interrogates them on a wide array of topics – domestic, international and personal – while commenting on the Bible, the Big Bang, the origin of mankind, and so much more.
God comments on what He’s hearing – pointing out with tremendous humor the foibles and falsehoods of both sides. Finally, God has a brainstorm and switches things up (he can do that, he’s GOD!) and the two may have a chance to reignite the flame between them. But will they take it?
Given the current state of our politics – GOD HELP US! speaks to audiences of all political persuasions with one essential argument, that we must listen to each other so that we can all live – and laugh – together.
