In this beautiful and bizarre new play, a family is both torn apart and drawn together by the accidental death of a child. They are aided in their search for connection and solace by flights of fantasy involving a singing Tooth Fairy and a life-size G.I. Joe. In the space between what is said and what is unspeakable they find a heartrending collage of truth and cliché.
Playwright Jenny Schwartz is well-known for pushing the envelope with theater that blends the commonplace and the surreal. God’s Ear is exactly that sort of challenging escape.
As the New York Times declared, “words gush forth in torrents, spewing up like geysers on a ghostly plain” in this “arrestingly odd … ode to love, loss and the routines of life.”
