In God is a Woman, Andre has been asking himself who he is, and who God is. His mother, who struggles to believe in God, his grandmother, who believes in a ‘Mama God’, and his best friend, Amanda, who wants to believe in God, surround him. Three generations are forced to confront their reality as they navigate past traumas. The women share intimate memories as one night from the past links them together. This is the night of Andre’s birth, during which the town flooded. Through retellings of this memory, it is revealed that Andre’s mother wished for a girl when he was born. Andre’s navigation of transgender identity forms the emotional core of the text, whilst the figure of a ‘Mama God’ guides the women’s relationships to real belief and to each other. Maybe God is a woman, and maybe God and Andre are not so different after all. Directed by Tara Notcutt
