An Act of God Tickets

London Play
Tickets for a conversation with the Big Man at The Vaults
God is back... and she has a lot to say! After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (award-winning comedian Zoe Lyons as seen on Mock The Week and Celebrity Masterchef) assisted by her devoted angels Gabriel (Matt Tedford, aka ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho’) and Michael (Tom Bowen, Johnny Castle in ‘Dirty Dancing the Musical’) will answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since creation. In this very alternative Christmas message, An Act of God sees a dissatisfied deity, weary of the original Ten Commandments, delivering a new version: a fresh set of rules for the modern world. This sinfully funny comedy delivers a new meaning to divine intervention as The “One” gives the first and last word on everything mankind has wrought on the planet. An Act of God, written by former ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ writer David Javerbaum, was twice a smash hit on Broadway (starring Jim Parsons, Sheldon Cooper in the TV sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’, and Sean Hayes, Jack in ‘Will and Grace’). For this European premiere, Javerbaum has rewritten the play to feature bespoke material for Zoe Lyons and a British audience. He also continues to run the controversial Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod, through which God shares thoughts on world events with over six million followers. “Divinely funny” The New York Times “Wickedly irreverent… anarchic fun” The Hollywood Reporter “The jokes keep landing – and they are always smart” New York Magazine

  • Review Avatar Dec 1, 2019

    Great show, quirky venue, thoroughly recommend !

  • Review Avatar Dec 1, 2019

    Very well delivered by the actors - but I became bored fairly quickly. Unusual ending.

  • Review Avatar Dec 2, 2019

    Thoroughly enjoyable comedy

  • Review Avatar Dec 2, 2019

    This is such a fantastic, well written show and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t wait to see it again. God and her two archangels Gabriel and Michael are fantastic. Although it was really hard for me not to answer back with some of the comments that were made during the show. Really well adapted for UK audience and I can only hope that this is released electronically for audiences or three productions which had Jim Parsons, Sean Hayes, and the fantastic Zoe Lyons.

    Delightful and refreshing. Nicely adapted for the scenery.

  • Review Avatar Dec 9, 2019

    Perfect Christmas show!

  • Review Avatar Dec 15, 2019

    A very entertaining play. Zoe was just amazing and well supported by the other two actors. Very clever ending, did not see that coming! I might be a religious person but I found the play hilarious.

  • Review Avatar Dec 20, 2019

    Pant wettingly funny

  • Review Avatar Dec 21, 2019

    A very different experience but enjoyed it! Loved Gods eye glitter too! I want some! Where’s it from??

  • Review Avatar Dec 21, 2019

    While I found the acting slightly humorous, I felt the message it conveyed was over the top in its criticism of God and what the commandments mean in our daily lives. The plays’ credibility would have been enhanced if there was some ‘balance’ in its critical parody of God and the commandments. In summary good acting, but the storytelling was overbearing and skewed.

    It was sooooo god!??

  • Review Avatar Dec 22, 2019

    Lot of fun. Zoe Lyons brilliant as were two angels. Good ideas behind production. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Review Avatar Dec 22, 2019

    Really funny. Great performance by actors. Was water dripping from the roof, and sometimes noise disturbance. Unsure if this was on purpose. Loved it though.

  • Review Avatar Dec 23, 2019

    We thoroughly enjoyed this small yet delightful production. Witty and well-played, a proper way to enjoy the afternoon!

  • Review Avatar Dec 24, 2019

    Good fun & very well performed. Zoe's performance was a 'tour de force'.

  • Review Avatar Dec 30, 2019

    Funny & entertaining.

  • Review Avatar Dec 30, 2019

    Zoe Lyons was amazing and funny as ever

  • Review Avatar Dec 31, 2019

    An enjoyable night out that I thoroughly recommend seeing. Zoe Lyons is a great casting choice as God. Her delivery and comic timing enhance a good script with many laugh out loud moments. If the writers, who made a pretty good job of adapting it for a British audience, are still working on it there’s a couple of segments which fall a little flatter and could do with a tweak or two to turn a good script into a truly great one.

  • Review Avatar Dec 31, 2019

    Thoroughly enjoyable and Zoe Lyons was a force to be reckoned with.
