Pearly Mates Theatre Company Pearly Gates: A Kafkaesque Romcom in Heaven



Mediocre everyman Samuel Green has one week to prove himself worthy of permanent residence in Heaven. After a sequence of run-ins with the bizarre denizens of God’s Kingdom (including his parents, his ex, several of history's most influential writers, a yo-yo addict of an artistic persuasion and an ex-teacher disillusioned with omniscience), as the day of his appeal draws inexorably closer, Sam begins to wonder if eternal bliss is really for him. Nominated for the Cambridge Footlights’ annual playwriting prize, 2019. ‘Imaginative and funny’ (Alex Horne). 'A zest of life' (Varsity).
