'A stunning new play by the great American dramatist. Described by Sam Shepard as ''a take-off on Republican fascism'', this uncompromising black comedy was written just before the 2004 US presidential election.

Frank and Emma are American dairy farmers, alone in the Mid-West. Nothing ever happens. Nothing has happened for years. But now there''s a mysterious man hiding in their basement and a government official has come knocking at their door.

The God of Hell had its European premiere at the Donmar Warehouse, London, on 20 October 2005. ''A robust new farce [that] shows Shepard''s gift for finding deadpan surrealism in bucolic speech . . . As hilarious as it is sobering'' New York Times ''Deliriously entertaining and deeply scary . . . A shivering work of existential mystery'' Newsday ''A funny and furious stab at the Bush Administration'' The Times'

'A robust new farce(that) shows Shepard's gift for finding deadpan surrealism in bucolic speech... As hilarious as it is sobering.' New York Times 'Deliriously entertaining and deeply scary... A shivering work of existential mystery.' Newsday
