Written and performed by Isaacs ("Seinfeld," "Parks and Recreation," "My Name is Earl"), the limited engagement, directed by Matthew Corozine, will continue through Oct. 13.
Here's how the work is described: "When Susan, a 40-something Hollywood actress, finds herself jobless, loveless and living over a garage, she begins to question her faith. After an uptight church friend tells her to think of God as her husband, Susan sarcastically decides takes God to marriage counseling to see if they can keep it together 'for better or worse.'"
Angry Conversations is based on Isaacs' personal and professional conflicts as well as her combative history with what she calls "corporate Churchianity."
"I have been testing material for this show in front of religious and secular audiences, and I am excited about its wide appeal," said Isaacs in a statement. "I ask some significant religious questions, but you don't have to be spiritual to ask yourself: What's my purpose? What is my heart's deepest longing? What do I do with tragedy? Well, in my case, middle-class white-girl's tragedy."
Angry Conversations with God: The Solo Show will be performed Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM.
