God’s Favorite takes place in a 1970’s Long Island mansion. The household consists of a God-fearing tycoon named Joe Benjamin and his family: a jewel-crazed wife, Rose, a prodigal son, David, a pair of kooky twins, Ben and Sarah, and the maid and butler, Mady and Morris. One night, a messenger from God, Sidney Lipton arrives, and, as in the biblical story, goes through all manner of temptations to get Joe Benjamin to renounce God. When Joe refuses, he is visited by all the afflictions imaginable.
