Excuses Unacceptable

  • Cast Number: 4
  • Run-time: 12 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Luke 6:37
there is no excuse for not telling the story. We as Christians have a responsibility to tell others of the saving grace of Jesus. Judgement day is approaching for everyone. No one knows when. We must be ready. Are we? Are they?

Sample of script:

Scene opens as actor enters stage in low light. Spotlight slowly up as actor nears center stage. He looks around in frightened amazement, moves slowly to stand at center stage.

Actor 1, (nervous): Um, hello? Hello, . . . anyone? Where am I? What’s this all about? Hello?

balance of cast come on stage tentatively, looking around, frightened

Actor 2: What is going on here? I was at home working in my garden when all of a sudden . . .

Actor 3: I was at work, and there was this brilliant flash of light and then . .

Actor 4: I am much too busy to be here . . wherever “here” is . . .

Voice over, actors tremble): For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.

Actor 1: Judge? What’s to judge? And where is that voice coming from anyway?

Actor 2: Judged? We are being judged? Right now? Well, I wish someone would’ve told me about being judged, and what to expect. (points to another actor) Hey, look, judge him, not me. I didn’t know that I would be judged.

Voice over: Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door.

Actor 3: It’s a little late now to be explaining the rules. Why wasn’t all this explained a long time ago? And where is the safety net for protection when these sort of things happen?

Voice over: He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Actor 4: Wasn’t there someone who was supposed to tell me? Did they blow their assignment, or were they just incompetent?
