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

Props to @philrickaby for last night’s #thecommandment Had the house in the palm of his hand.

The acting, writing and story were beyond anything I could describe with words, but what I felt stayed with me hours after I had left.

The ability to hold an audience for an hour is a true compliment to Phil Rickaby’s skills as both a performer and writer.

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