God on High
Tulip, a young, free-spirited vicar, whose debt-ridden church is on the brink of closure, needs a miracle.
Living in a parish with a rising drug problem, trying to revive her failing love life, dealing with her bankrupt church, her oversexed nan, plus horny parishioners, she now has to acknowledge her grief after the unexpected death of her mother. With wavering faith, and bombarded with what appear to be signs from God, Tulip needs help. When an unexpected inheritance from her mother is announced, she finds herself asking is God testing her faith or providing the perfect solution to her problems?
God on High is a loosely autobiographical play by Rhoda Dell. Four years ago Rhoda heard a spiritual voice announcing that her mother, who was in good health, was going to die and how. And then she did... on Good Friday!
Since then life has continued to demonstrate to Rhoda that she may not be the sole author of her story. Following this realisation, she has found life a lot more interesting- when you let go of how you think life should look, to endless possibilities appear.
Rhoda holds a Masters in Theology from The University of St Andrews, and trained at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in Acting and Singing.
God on High is directed by Karen Rabinowitz, poster design by Nigel Hook (Tony award winner) and original music by Sam Hall.

Theatre Company Reviews:
“Just watched God on High and I am on a high! I wanted so much more, when it ended I was like, “no carry on!” Just so perfect, I couldn’t recommend it enough.”
“That was beautiful, such extraordinary talent. I wish I could write like that. The absolute constant comedy that comes through but then such warmth. I was thoroughly engrossed, it went so quickly!”
