Is this God?”
Earl is a regular guy. He’s got a job, he’s got friends, he’s not alone. He is, however, lost. Not geographically; spiritually. So when a bizarre business card seems to offer answers, he’s going to grab them. But is a phone call really all it takes?
This sharp new play questions the need for religion in the 21st century.
The London Premiere of The Boy on the Swing is directed by Fringe First 2010 winner Joe Murphy (Artistic Director of nabokov).
