PERFORMANCE CANCELLATION NOTICE

UPDATED MARCH 16, 2020—In response to the evolving circumstances surrounding COVID-19, our organization is taking immediate, proactive steps to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our patrons, staff and all Geffen Playhouse visitors. Out of an abundance of caution, following the postponement of Man of God, we have now cancelled the full run of the production. In addition, we will not be moving forward with our future production of Bernhardt/Hamlet, which was scheduled to begin previews Tuesday, April 7, 2020. Our annual Backstage at the Geffen fundraiser, originally scheduled for April 20, 2020, has also been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date. We will continue to monitor the situation closely in the event we need to make additional changes.

OVERVIEW

During a mission trip to Thailand, four girls discover that their 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. Kyung-Hwa thinks everyone needs to have lower expectations for men. And Mimi’s out for blood, as usual.

Their communal rage and disillusionment fuel increasingly violent revenge fantasies amidst the no-holds-barred neon bubblegum sex-tourism mecca of Bangkok. 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.

Man of God was premiered by East West Players in January 2019, and will replace the previously-announced production of Nightfall.
