EAST BRUNSWICK – Twist of Faith is a new, original comedy produced at Playhouse 22 in East Brunswick. This zany, fast paced play features God and the Devil wagering over the eternal fate of a church-going accountant and his family. Once the bet is made, all hell breaks loose. It’s going to be a tough week at the Hendricks’s house.

Directed by Gerry Appel, the play offers a unique experience for the theatergoer.

“People come out to the theater because they want to see something different. First productions of new works are rare and that makes Twist of Faith special,” said Appel. “The actors get a chance to put their stamp on the show and the audience has the thrill of seeing something new, funny and off the wall.”

Playwright Richard Fink summed up the show, “Gerry and I have said that Twist of Faith is a screwball comedy that will make a believer out of anyone. That’s true because the show is about every day people thrown into an out of control situation that abruptly changes their lives. That type of thing happens to lots of people in the real world, although God and the Devil are not behind it. Or are they?”

Twist of Faith is part of the Playhouse 22 On The Edge series, a regular feature in their season of plays and musicals. The series demonstrates the theater’s commitment to new writers and plays that bring fresh perspectives to the stage.

The comedy features an ensemble cast of actors well known in New Jersey theatergoers: Damian Muziani, John Devennie, Angela Dohl, Chris North, Jessica Junqua, Ken Paris, Howard Fischer and Rupert Ravens.

Twist of Faith opens on March 15 and runs until March 24. Performances are Friday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. All tickets are $12 and are available online at Playhouse22.org, by calling the Box Office at 1-732-254-3939 or at the Box Office window.

Playhouse 22 is East Brunswick’s Community Theater troupe and is located at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center at 721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick.
