Based on Javerbaum's book The Last Testament: A Memoir by God and the popular Twitter account @TheTweetofGod, An Act of God centers around the Supreme Being and his ever-faithful archangels, Michael and Gabriel. In this one-act comedy, God gives his mortals an entirely new set of Ten Commandments.

An Act of God continues through November 26.
