Dusty Bums Productions Bring ANGELS AND WHISKEY to Hollywood Fringe, Now thru 6/27
When John has a heart attack in a bar he doesn't immediately notice his own death but he does order another whiskey from the reaper. Now, stuck in a heaven that he 'chose' himself, condemned to drink the same glass of whiskey over and over for eternity, his misery attracts the attention of Lucifer who is curious about someone who has successfully created their own Hell in Heaven. And the fun begins.
A dark comedy about free will, Angels and Whiskey is the show to see of you want to know what really happened to Shakespeare, The Marquis de Sade, Ayn Rand and Gandhi once they shuffled off this mortal coil.
