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).

Pearly Gates: A Kafkaesque Romcom in Heaven interview

Recently deceased Sam has always got by on loveable mediocrity, and expects to do so long into eternity - until his delusion is shattered by a deeply uncompassionate receptionist at the gates of Heaven.
