Go Fly a Kite

  • Cast Number: 2

Imagine what it would be like to have an informal, friendly one-on-one chat with God, just . . . chatting.
And what if God told you to go fly a kite?
Fact is, God wants to speak with us, and He does speak . . unfortunately we aren’t real good at hearing His voice, or getting into the “God chatting” mode.

actor comes on stage, reads at newspaper, gets bored, stretching, looks around, looks upward

Actor: Wow, what a nothing day!
Boooorrring!

OK then . . . might as well get ready . . .

actor assumes a “praying” look and stance, folds hands and looks upward

Actor: Our Father . . .
VOG: Hi Tim, (or whatever name).

(“praying” again)
Our Father . .
VOG: Hi Tim.
Actor, annoyed: OK, I have had about enough, who is that?
VOG: It’s me.

Actor: “Chat”?
