About This Show

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”. .

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 writer for software company (English, not code).
