Quotations:

For Father God

"A hilarious and intelligent family sitcom based around the holy trinity of a fallible father (God), and his two teenage children (Jesus and the Holy Spirit) who create and then lament their burgeoning wayward creation. The exceptional writing is enacted by a talented trio who send up The Bible with insight and some tenderness, not in flippancy or irreverence. The Satire here is skilfully executed, as well as playful. Very funny indeed!" - The Latest

"A comic play as opposed to straight stand up, ‘Father God’ is a family sitcom based on the Holy Trinity depicting God as a single parent Father to two reprobate teenagers (also God). Written by Tasha Dhanraj whilst studying Theology at Oxford University, this is the first play from her off the back of being shortlisted for the Funny Women Writing Award 2016 and being selected for the Grand Scheme Media Team Writing Initiative in association with Hat Trick Productions. She was also a teenage stand up. A great calibre for any emerging writer to boast, and the very best time to be creating something completely different to anyone else." - Vicky Nangle, Fringe Review

"Top 10 Hidden Gem of the Brighton Fringe" - Broadway Baby

“The writing is genuinely funny and notably intelligent… Dhanraj’s gentle satire was a delectable treat.” - Fergus Morgan, The Cherwell
