The God that Comes is an original one-man-band cabaret-rock-&-roll hybrid show featuring Juno award-winner Hawksley Workman. Hailed in the Toronto Star for its “incredible instrumental virtuosity” and “slashing sardonic wit,” it tells the story of a king whose subjects revolt against his oppressive rule to worship the Greco-Roman god of wine Bacchus (aka Dionysus) in a hedonistic spiritual revolution. This concept album for the stage, created with 2b Theatre Company’s Christian Barry is a work-in-progress that fuses the chaotic revelry of a rock concert with the intimacy of theatrical storytelling.
