One of Paterson's celebrated shorts from his collection, The Blonde and Other Slight Distractions. Perfect for scene studies, two person auditions, scene nights and showcases, providing a wide variety of characters both humorous and thought provoking. In The Gate, John is killed in a traffic accident and finds himself at the Pearly Gates. Much to his surprise they are in the process of being painted, and The Devil in various disguises is constantly trying to get through.
