Sam Galahad, private eye, sits in the Red Eye Lounge, “one of those bars in one of those hotels out by an airport.” The Red Eye is presided over by piano player Buddy Toupee. Sam’s a typical gumshoe.

GOD HELP US! is a play ripped from today’s headlines, an evening’s entertainment that is at once hilarious, unifying and thought provoking.  Two pundits, Larry (a liberal lad) and Randi (a conservative gal), find themselves confronted by GOD (the legendary Ed Asner), a wise, sarcastic, cantankerous and wildly funny character who is offended by what America’s political leaders have done to America. He has brought Randi and Larry to Purgatory for a lively debate about the issues our time. And whomever he finds more persuasive will get God’s “mighty thumb on the scale” in one or the other’s favor.  We learn that Randi and Larry were a couple back in their college days, but politics tore them apart – in large measure because they couldn’t learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.
