To The Great Egress

PT Barnum, the consummate promoter, waits at the ‘pearly gates’ apprehensively preparing for his admissions interview and outlining his plans to improve the attractiveness of heaven. He is joined by Saul Alinsky, the consummate community organizer, and Joice Heth, a former slave and PT’s first ‘exhibit’.

To the Great Egress examines the lives of the PT Barnum; Saul Alinsky; Joice Heth; Dante’s Inferno; the concepts of power and free will; and God’s capricious cruelty.
