THE GHOST OF AGNES KELLER – A LIFE IN THE AFTERLIFE COMEDY

Agnes Keller, a wisecracking, mother of two and housewife is dead. Her drowning is not her real problem. Her real problem is she can’t get into Heaven until she gets her Angel Classification in this afterlife comedy.  Unfortunately, due to a “heavenly error”, she can’t be classified until she gets her sleazy husband, George, to confess to murdering her.

Agnes is permitted to return to Earth, for one week, to get George’s confession. However, George is not about to give up the extravagant lifestyle he has gained, since parlaying Agnes’ life insurance policy into a small fortune. Since George is the only one who can see or hear Agnes, he feels confident that there is nothing she can do to force him to confess.

But there are bigger problems – her daughter, Melanie has turned into the school tramp and her thirteen year old son, Brian, a promising athlete, has evolved into a pathetic bookworm. George has also gotten himself involved with Vincent Scarfone, a very, unsavory, underworld-type figure, who has bought a racehorse from George that ends up “dying in the stretch.” But did George intend to kill Agnes that day?

Other plays by playwright Carl Megill – The Hopeful Diamond Caper – a diamond necklace, a fabulously wealthy old lady on a ship and the two guys who plan to steal it.
