The God That Comes

featuring Hawksley Workman | 2b theatre company

 

In a world ruled by greed and an oppressive king, the lesser classes have taken to the countryside in a revolution of hedonism and spirituality. There, they commune with their animal needs to dance, to lose control, to get drunk and to have sex.

The God That Comes is a wine-soaked rock & roll cabaret starring Hawksley Workman in an extraordinary solo performance that fuses the chaotic revelry of a rock concert with the intimacy of theatre. Hawksley – award-winning rocker, writer and actor – plays all the characters and all the instruments in a spectacle of pure talent.

It is a tonic for a society that has lost its sense of balance and abandoned its animal instincts.

Raise a glass, get lost in the music, but beware; this is Bacchus at his most potent.
