LOT AND

HIS GOD

The Print Room

3-24 Nov 2012

UK Premiere

Nominated for 4 Off West End Awards including Best Director

This was my debut professional production.

 

Sodom. The day before the city’s total annihilation. Among the grimy tables of a run-down café, an angel tells Lot that God wants him to flee, before the city is obliterated. However, Lot’s irresistible wife has other ideas... As the angel and Lot’s wife embark on a dangerous game of seduction, cruelty and desire, we are drawn ever deeper into the dark and impenetrable forest that is the marriage between Lot and the bewitching woman he worships... A powerful and deeply moving reimagining of the biblical story of Lot, LOT AND HIS GOD subtly exposes the uneasy and ever more pertinent truth that giving sin permission is as guilty as sin itself...
