“Man of God” Comes to The Geffen Playhouse

Man of God is a funny feminist thriller about that moment when girls realize the male gaze has been watching all along, and decide they’re definitely gonna do something about it.

Directed by Maggie Burrows and written by Anna Moench, Man of God is sure to leave you in stitches. The story follows a mission trip to Bangkok, where the four members of a Korean Christian girls’ youth group discover that their revered pastor has hidden a camera in their hotel bathroom. Samantha is personally wounded that Pastor would do this to her. Jen is worried about how this might affect her college applications. Mimi’s out for blood, as usual. And Kyung-Hwa thinks everyone needs to have lower expectations for men. Their communal rage and disillusionment fuel increasingly violent revenge fantasies amidst the no-holds-barred neon bubblegum sex-tourism mecca of Bangkok. The play is set to kick off in March. We love all the original pieces The Geffen Playhouse is constantly curating in it’s playbook.
