God's Favorite by Neil Simon


First Pres Theater debuts its 2021 UnSeason with the award-winning, God's Favorite, written by Neil Simon and directed by John Tolley.

Successful businessman Joe Benjamin has admittedly had a wonderful life. He has a successful business selling boxes while living with his family in their beautiful Long Island mansion. Joe, being a devout religious man, attributes all of his success and happiness to the big “G”: God. But when an eccentric messenger from God visits Joe all hell breaks loose! Joe, God’s favorite servant, is being put to the test; he must either renounce his faith in God or suffer severe consequences. The jokes and tests of faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale, while masterfully avoiding the easy slide into sacrilege like no other in this hilarious comedy.
