About The Show “Wake-up Call”
Based on real life shocking experience of Playwright/Performer, Jerry Franklin, Wake-up Call is an emotionally turbulent, meaningful and surprisingly funny love story – an unusual variation on “boy meets girl, boy loses girl”. This Solo Performance plays one night only – on May 11, 2016 – at 7:30pm at The Marsh Theatre, a breeding ground for new performances, in San Francisco’s Mission District.
Fate is clearly at work when happenstance connects Jerry and his future wife Kate at a dog park in Los Angeles. She had asked the universe to send her a Jew and the universe delivered. Though they have about as much in common as a chrysanthemum and a kitchen mop – Jerry would be the mop in this analogy – they stay together. And then fate intervenes again.
Jerry Franklin has been a writer all his adult life, and a performer even longer. He’s a former print and broadcast journalist, a recovering screenwriter, a nascent playwright, and entering his third decade writing for software companies (English – not code). He also possesses a range of professional performing credits in music, theatre, and improv comedy, and earned a standing ovation at a recent Bawdy Storytelling show.
Jerry is a native of Brooklyn, currently resides in Alameda with his two dogs, and has never stopped searching for good pastrami. Details, photos and video clips: www.JerryFranklinOnStage.com
