Playwright Gregory G Allen
We’re thrilled to introduce NY audiences to the new play, WELL WITH MY SOUL by Gregory G Allen, as a part of The Seeing Place’s TSP UNPLUGGED Reading Series.

This play tells the story of Jacob Garrett, a transplant southern minister living in New York City in the late 80s, believes he is doing God's will by trying to get a young gay man to pray away the gay. But while sharing stories of his past that included drugs, homosexuality, and an arrogant lifestyle, Jacob's own life as a married father seems to have more turmoil than peace. Told in a non-linear way, WELL WITH MY SOUL captures two lifetimes battling within one soul.
