"An Old Jewish Man Goes to Gan Eden and Gehinnom": A Play

I have a PhD in chemistry. A few years ago I realized I wouldn’t get a Nobel prize in Chemistry because my high school and college had seven Noble prize winners already. So, I wrote a few plays. A  friend called me and said that he is putting an evening together of several short plays on the topic “Heaven and Hell.” He said all the contributions involved Christian themes. He asked if I could submit one with a Jewish theme. That’s how I came to write “"An Old Jewish Man Goes to Gan Eden and Gehinnom."
