Written especially for the Globe theatre, Chris Hannan's play is a savagely modern City Comedy, complementing the long tradition of bracing satires on London, with a wild assault on the lurid world of modern celebrity. It is a world of addiction to cocaine and to handbags, to flash-bulbs and to tabloid exposure, and all filled with the overwhelming need for the modern world's most powerful drug, attention. Bursting with dirty language and filthy content, The God of Soho is directed by Raz Shaw, and features Phil Daniels and Edward Hogg.
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's facing exposure in the tabloids. Sex shops and comedy, gods and homeless people all collide in a fierce, hectic and hilarious story about people looking for the divine. In Essex.
