Shakespeare's Globe

The God Of Soho [2011]

Written by: Chris Hannan
Directed by: Raz Shaw

A thief in heaven steals the divinity of the gods. Meanwhile down on Earth some fetish items have been nicked from a reality TV star and she's facing exposure in the tabloids. Sex shops and comedy, gods and homeless people, all collide in a fierce, hectic and hilarious story about people looking for the divine. In Essex.

Chris Hannan is one of the UK’s leading playwrights. His previous work includes the award-winning The Evil Doers at the Bush Theatre, Shining Souls at the Old Vic and Gamblers at the Tricycle Theatre. He has written extensively for television and has published two novels.

As bracingly modern as Che Walker’s The Frontline, which thrilled Globe audiences in 2008 and 2009, The God of Soho is not for the faint-hearted. Bursting with dirty language and filthy content.
