    Pearly Gates: A Kafkaesque Romcom in Heaven
    By Archie Williams & Calum Macleod

    23:00, Wed 23rd – Sat 26th October 2019 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 2

    ‘You’ve got to do something pretty damn impressive to not get into heaven these days. Inflation hit us pretty bad as well.’

    A quasi-uplifting comedy about interdimensional lovers faced with mortality, bureaucracy and the crushing boredom of eternity.

    Upon stepping into the arrivals lounge, Will is informed that he is in holding for divine punishment. Either Hell, or worse - a bottom karma-band reincarnation and return to Earth. With only seven days to seek redemption and secure his place above the sky, he will encounter many of the bored residents of paradise as he wrestles with the celestial bureaucracy, wrangles with angelic officials and whines about the existential squalor of eternity with a workaholic former Pope.

    Come and witness what two writers with one RS GCSE between them will produce if they talk about Heaven for long enough: the Kafkaesque Romcom that left Alex Horne "feeling peculiar about whether I will ultimately want to get into the Pearly Gates." Highly commended for the Footlights Harry Porter Prize, we invite you into the afterlife. Take a seat, there’s a queue.
