Benjamin, a young boy, surprisingly finds himself in heaven. He discovers a friend in Timothy, but the rest of his time is filled with challenge and strife. If only he could talk with his mother, or find his beloved box, then all might be well. But what about his father, who disappeared all those years ago? This holiday treat, with book and music by Pam and Howard Wilson, will tug at your heartstrings with songs like "Mama, It's Me" and "You Gotta Have Faith". It's a delight for the whole family.

To tell you part of the plot of Five-Door Farce would mislead you. To tell you more than that would reveal too much.  When pressed about the play, I've said the following: It's a tragedy inside a parody of a farce.  It's the collision of Noises Off and Six Characters in Search of Author.  It's a farce, seriously.  Exploring the themes of creation and Creation, gender roles, identity, religion, theater, determinism, and existentialism, it plays with the conventions of farce in a way that fans of farce will love and enemies of farce will appreciate.  Oh, and it’s funny. - Robert Merrill, playwright
