About the Show
“A dark comedy with the can-puppets-really-do-that raunchiness of Avenue Q and can-people-really-say-that outrageousness of The Book of Mormon.” –New York Times
“Sesame Street meets The Exorcist.” –The New Yorker
“Crazily hilarious, I was blown away.” –Chicago Tribune
Something devilish is lurking in a church basement puppet show in Cypress, Texas. And his name is…Tyrone. He may look like an innocent sock puppet, but when he infiltrates the angst-ridden church youth group and takes possession of Jason’s arm, all hell breaks loose. Spectacularly foul-mouthed and wickedly scandalous, Tyrone shocks the congregation with his outrageous insinuations, exposing their deepest secrets—and teaching us all about love, grief and what it means to be human. A smash success on Broadway and in London, this darkly delightful and wildly funny comedy is the most produced play in America!
“This play is about me. I’m the star. This bunch of losers at San Diego REP is lucky to have me. But they better watch out, because if I don’t get my way I’m gong to trash the dressing rooms. Anyway, come check me out. I’m funny when I’m not ruining things…come to think of it I’m funniest when I AM ruining things (EVIL LAUGH).” –Tyrone the puppet
