"Hilarious... the world's most awkard 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner' scenario..." -72 Hours/FNP
In THE GOD OF THIS WORLD (2015), a New York City lawyer tries to convince his blogger daughter that her affair with an extraterrestrial is a fantasy.
THE GOD OF THIS WORLD is a generational comedy about the tense but often hilarious relationship between a stressed-out, divorced New York lawyer and his unemployed blogger daughter. The daughter, who blogs about extraterrestrials, is apparently having intimate relations with an alien. Her mother hears about the situation and becomes determined to stop any alien ‘invasion’ that might be in progress. Will love win out on Planet Earth? Come to this very funny and thought provoking show and find out. THE GOD OF THIS WORLD is the featured play of the 2015 METLab ‘Plays in Progress’ series.
