The devil is lurking in a church basement puppet show in Cypress, Texas. And his name is…Tyrone. He may look like an innocent sock puppet, but when he infiltrates the angst-ridden church youth group and takes possession of Jason’s arm, all Hell breaks loose. Spectacularly foul-mouthed and wickedly scandalous, Tyrone shocks the congregation with his outrageous insinuations, exposing their deepest secrets—and teaching us all about what it means to be human. A smashing success on Broadway and in London, this fast-paced irreverent comedy is the Texas playwright’s Alley debut. The New York Times called the play “Darkly delightful” and The New Yorker described it as “Sesame Street meets The Exorcist.”
