This week on the show we welcome back the work of Roger Gregg with a piece created in cooperation with the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland.
Morgan O’Brien hangs in limbo between life and death, and finds the afterlife a much wilder place than he imagined. Confused, frustrated, and alone, he is forced to confront the reality of his actions made while alive. But is there still time to go back and change things?

I enjoyed this play. Silly, yet realistic (at it’s heart).
Thanks so much for the comments — I’ll pass it along to Roger. I agree that Roger has a great way of combining humor with serious topics. He does this extremely well in his play “The Last Harbinger” — do a search on this site and you can find its four episodes, played about 2 yrs ago.
Great play. I’m really excited that you’re going to be playing other work by Roger Gregg since everything I’ve heard so far has been brilliant! I was also impressed by his students – sounded professional to me!
Glad you enjoyed it! One of the first plays to go out on the bonus episodes will be another from the Gaiety School of Acting, the “Return of the Bogman” mummy. There will also be stuff from back when he did live stuff with the RTE, which is likewise excellent.
