About the Show Less...

This new play is a fierce, funny and hectic story about people looking for the divine. In Essex. Read More >

The God Of Soho is a new play by Chris Hannan staged at Shakespeare’s Globe as part of its The Word Is God season.

A thief in heaven steals the divinity of the gods. Meanwhile down on Earth some fetish items have been nicked from a reality TV star and she is facing exposure in the tabloids. Sex shops and comedy, gods and homeless people all collide in a fierce and hectic story about people looking for the divine. In Essex.

Full of dirty language and filthy content, The God Of Soho is not for the faint-hearted.

The God Of Soho author Hannan has previously had work staged at the Bush theatre, the Old Vic and the Tricycle theatre.
