The Play

“The first time God spoke to me, I was on the toilet.”

Thomas is using a public restroom. He is surprised when God starts talking to him from the next stall and tells him that he has been selected to deliver a new commandment to mankind. There’s one big problem, though: Thomas is an atheist. His belief structure shattered, Thomas embarks on a journey he never wanted as he tries to deal with his new life as reluctant prophet. Today, Thomas is crashing an open mic night to tell his story.

Daniel MacIvor’s House meets Monty Python’s The Life of Brian, The Commandment is a solo dramatic comedy about loss, love and the pitfalls of taking a crap beside the almighty.

What people are saying

Great performance by @philrickaby at the Commandment!

I think it was the best show I’ve seen in a very long time. It made me laugh and cry big wet soppy tears.

Another compelling story in Phil Rickaby’s “The Commandment”… complete command (forgive the pun) of the stage and who knew god sounded like a classic film star??

A well-crafted story with surprising emotional impact. The jokes are sharp and the pathos is deep.

I took this picture of Old City Hall this morning, and forgot to post it. How is your week going to?…
