“Landing all the jokes... Moritz von Stuelpnagel tackles darkly funny materials with a shrewd balance of heightened reality, warped sitcom & underlying pathos”

–Hollywood Reporter

Tony and Emmy Award winner Jason Alexander makes his Chicago stage debut in a hilariously irreverent world premiere comedy staged by Tony-⁠nominated Broadway director Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Present Laughter, Hand to God). Alexander plays Sammy Campo, a deeply corrupt, morally bankrupt lawyer who's threatened with eternal damnation by a terrifying angel after a near-death experience. In a desperate attempt to redeem himself, Sammy forms an unlikely bond with a Catholic priest who is having his own crisis of faith, and together they debate the timeless questions of Western philosophy—“morality,” “faith,” and “Are people any damn good?”
