God's Favorite is Neil Simon's modern tale loosely based on the Book of Job. Joe Benjamin is a wealthy and respected businessman living with his family in suburban Long Island. God and Satan make a bet and God puts his trust in Joe to keep his faith. God's messenger, sent to test Joe's faith, is a wise cracking guy from Queens. Will Joe remain steadfast? This play was written in 1973 during a rough time in Simon's personal life after the death of his wife. Simon poses some large questions about life, but never loses his wonderful sense of humor.
