The God That Comes

The God That Comes
by Christian Barry , Hawksley Workman
directed by Christian Barry
June 03, 2014 – June 29, 2014
This is an old story, a story about a soldier king, his mother, and a new god. The city’s slaves, women and outlaws climb the mountain to drink and worship through abandon; for this new god is the god of wine, sex and ecstasy. Created and performed by Canadian sensation Hawksley Workman, The God That Comes is wine-soaked rock and roll theatre at its most Bacchanal.
Making his Tarragon debut — both writing and performing — the two-time Juno winner Hawksley Workman is a prolific singer-songwriter and actor. Christian Barry, a past Kareda Resident, is a director, actor and writer from Halifax where he is artistic co-director of 2b theatre company.
