In his play Hand to God , Askins explores the complex duality of human nature and the battle against the self. The five-time Tony-nominated Hand to God came to Addison where scenic designer Richard Ouellette has created a set that will feel familiar to anyone who attended church as a kid.

Every wall is covered with banners printed with phrases such as Praise Him, Alleluia and Peace on Earth. Her mild-mannered son Jason has been preparing a song about Jesus with his seemingly ordinary puppet, Tyrone.

But things quickly turn dark — really dark. The amazing Parker Gray embodied the innocent and confused Jason, whose life is taken over by the puppet Tyrone.

Tyrone began as a foul-mouthed, sex-crazed puppet and has now slid down the slippery slope that begins with sinful thoughts and has become the violent embodiment of the devil.

Gray simultaneously played these two polar opposites, able to flawlessly match his facial expression, voice and demeanor to Jason even when the evil Tyrone is speaking.

The charming and well-tressed Garret Storms perfectly plays Timothy, the bad church kid dressed in black.

Thomas Ward gives a convincing performance as Pastor Greg, whose failed attempts to woo Margery through loneliness and vulnerability reveal his manipulative nature.

The superb cast under the well-balanced directing of Joanie Schultz kept this disturbing but strangely hilarious show focused on the big question of the violent and destructive aspects that inhabit humans.

Touching performances revealed the darkest secrets, thoughts and struggles of each character. Hand to God runs through Aug. However, Tyrone takes it to a whole new level, calling out Timothy for his insecurity and jerkiness, telling him to run off.

Timothy, feeling bold, reveals to Jason he had sex with his mother. An enraged Tyrone attacks Timothy, biting off his ear against Jason's own pleas.

Scene 1 - After sewing Timothy's ear back on, the congregation try to figure out their next move. Margery insists on exorcism and they can all go home, but Jessica and Pastor Greg believe calling the police is the better option.

Margery rejects this course of action, worried that they will take Jason away from her. Pastor Greg decides to take it upon himself to confront the boy. Scene 2 - Back in the basement, Tyrone, apparently with Jason's help, has turned the room into his own personal hell, with graffiti, torn up posters, mutilated stuffed animals, and crucified dolls.

After a conversation with Jason, Tyrone refuses to reveal if he really is the devil or not, instead claiming that every action one could easily pin on the devil was really done by Jason, even the lightbulb turning off by itself.

Pastor Greg arrives and tries to appeal to Jason by explaining he is trying to help his mother. Tyrone seizes the opportunity to reveal that Margery and Timothy had sex, and a horrified Pastor Greg stumbles out of the classroom back towards his office.

Scene 3 - Timothy finds Margery alone in the office, and despite the pain of having lost his ear, still insists on his love for Margery. Relenting, Margery agrees to sleep with him one more time, but their tryst is interrupted: first by Jessica, who is looking for the keys to Margery's car to get the rest of the puppets; second by Pastor Greg.

Upon seeing this, Margery rejects Timothy once more. Angered, he leaves, insisting he will tell everyone about her. Pastor Greg, disgusted, goes to call the police, claiming he cannot keep Margery around if this is what she does.

Margery finally snaps, calling out Pastor Greg for his lame attempt at a come-on, and shouting about Jason not being there for her after her husband's death and instead talking to a puppet.

She tears pages out of Pastor Greg's Bible, complaining that not even the church has helped her with her troubles. After finally letting out all her repressed anger, she decides she is better off going to the police.

Pastor Greg, however, has another idea. Scene 4 - Jason and Tyrone are still in the basement, but Jason is starting to grow restless being alone with his puppet. Tyrone's attempt to convince him otherwise is interrupted by Jessica coming in through the window with her puppet, a buxom character complete with button breasts named Jolene.

Tyrone and Jolene proceed to engage in highly vocal sex. Jessica uses the distraction to finally get through to Jason, and asks him out to homecoming before leaving as Pastor Greg and Margery enter.

Pastor Greg has Margery talk to Jason directly. She tries to apologize for all her actions while talking over Tyrone's name-calling. Pastor Greg leaves with a warning to Jason that he needs to choose whether he or Tyrone gets out of the room.

Jason, alone once again, decides he has had enough of Tyrone's influence, and tries to remove the puppet from his hand.

Tyrone, however, attacks his puppeteer, calling him ungrateful for his help. After a lengthy struggle, Jason finally removes the puppet from his hand.

Thinking he has defeated the devil, he then grabs a towel and tries to treat the finger that Tyrone bit. However, Tyrone shows up again inside Jason's towel, and once again tries to kill his puppeteer.

Jason finally manages to restrain Tyrone to a table and grabs a hammer to try to bludgeon the puppet to death, but Tyrone keeps reviving with each blow. With no other apparent choice, Jason turns the hammer around and prepares to slam the claw of the head straight into his hand.

Before he can do this, Margery returns, sees what he's doing, and tries to stop him, resulting in her own hand getting impaled by the claw of the hammer.

Jason, horrified by what he has done, runs to help his mother, and Tyrone does not revive when he handles the towel again. As the two leave the basement arm-in-arm for a hospital, Margery insists Jason tell her if Tyrone comes back, and she will be there for him.

Epilogue - However, Tyrone emerges one last time from the shadows without Jason's help, now much larger and more demented looking than before.

He mocks the audience for wanting to see him again, because that's what people want to do with the devil—you want him, and then you want him to go away. This resulted in humanity shifting the blame for their demons by killing the innocent, like sheep, lambs, and babies, before finally settling for killing the sweetest guy: Jesus.

And humanity spends the last thousand years solving their problems by putting horns on them and watching their saviors burn. Might just be the place you saw the devil before.
