God's Favorite Play Graphic

The Southwestern Community College (SWCC) Drama Club will perform Neil Simon's hilarious comedy, God's Favorite, on March 30, 31, and April 1, 2017, at 7 p.m. each evening at the SWCC Performing Arts Center in Creston.  Tickets, $5 for students and $7 for the general public, may be purchased at the door.

In the play, businessman Joe Benjamin has admittedly had a wonderful life.  He has a successful business selling boxes while living with his family in their beautiful Long Island mansion.  Benjamin, being a devout religious man, attributes all of his success and happiness to the big “G” himself:  God.  But when an eccentric messenger from God visits Benjamin, everything quickly falls apart.  Benjamin, God’s favorite servant, is being put to the test; he must either renounce his faith in God or suffer severe consequences.  The jokes and tests of faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious comedy.

The play is being directed by Kelly Franklin, drama club sponsor.
