The One Good Thing or "Are ya Patrick Swayze?" by Joe Bravaco Directed By Mead Winters

One morning, after a severe lashing of rain, Jamie makes an astonishing declaration. He announces that he is dead, a ghost. Tommy, naturally, is unconvinced and maintains that his brother's delusion is caused by the grief Jamie has suffered since their mother’s death. With humor and pathos, the men explore a trail of love, grief, and guilt.
