In this gently veiled analogy, God comes knocking on the office door of a psychotherapist and single mother named Ella; both of whom have been battling low-grade depression. With a clash of quotes from Genesis and the Prophets, framed by a modern-day wit, two-time winner of the Israeli Theatre Award for Best Comedy Anat Gov brings a “funny...often brilliant text” (The Jerusalem Post) that forces us to grapple with the balance between power and humility. Oh God was translated by Anthony Berris, English language adaptation by Guy Ben Aharon.
