THE GOD OF HELL, by Sam Shepard
directed by jaimelyn gray

Emma and Frank live a quiet life with their cows in the heart of Wisconsin. They don’t expect anything exciting to come from taking in their friend Haynes, but when secret agent Welch comes looking for Haynes, this slice of American heartland is turned into a place of paranoia and unspeakable horror. A rarely staged dark comedy, Sam Shepard’s play written in response to our government’s reaction to 9/11 is now more timely than ever.


Rehearsals begin Monday, August 12, 2019, 5 days/week, 20 hours/week, Mondays - Thursdays, alternating Saturdays and Sunday evenings, accommodating conflicts. 

Run: Friday, September 27 - Saturday, October 12, 2019, Fridays - Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 4pm

All rehearsals and performances will be at The Underground Collaborative. There is a stipend.
