Cast
God, Human, Tree, Satan

Actors representing “Human” and “Tree” come on stage, come to center stage positions, separated by approximately 10 feet if possible, with Human at Center Left and Tree at Center Right position. Try as much as possible, (by having heads down and wearing hoods), to obscure faces as these actors walk on stage. When on stage the actors are kneeling, looking in an upstage direction, freeze.

God comes slowly on stage from Stage Right, remains near Downstage Right position. God is smiling as comes on stage, then is looking around, as though looking for something, frowns, looks sad. Stops, thinks, “has an idea”

God reaches out with open hands, takes handfuls of “something”, pours it out at waist height. Fingers make motions of waves on the water, God sticks an index finger in the water, stirs it around, puts finger in mouth, tastes the water, smiles very approvingly.

God stands back, looks over the water, smiles, nods in approval.

After a few seconds God’s smile fades, indicates looking for something, as though there is something missing, stops, indicates having an idea.God then takes hands, spreads the water, builds up high mountains above the water. Spend time on making some mountains higher than others, and have mountains in a couple of locations

God stands back, looks at the mountains, (looking from the base up to the peak of the mountain), smiles, nods in approval.

After a few seconds God’s smile fades, indicates looking for something, as though there is something missing, stops, indicates having an idea.God runs His fingers in the earth, with finger tips forms grass, blows on the grass. God forms a flower, leaf by leaf petal by petal, leans over to smell the flower, smiles in contentment, quickly makes more flowers.

God stands back, looks at the grass and flowers, smiles, nods in approval.

After a few seconds God’s smile fades, indicates looking for something, as though there is something missing, stops, indicates having an idea.

God looks around, see the tree crouched down, walks all around Tree, sizing it up. From Upstage position, (face to face with Tree), God puts hands on Tree’s elbows, gently lifts Tree into standing position. (Tree will permanently stay facing Upstage).

God flicks imaginary something off Tree, looks at the Tree approvingly. Takes Tree’s branch, (arm), lifts it so that it stands out and in somewhat up direction. Note that in order to maintain this outstretched position try having the elbow bent, elbow nestled and supported at Tree’s side.

God repeats this procedure with other arm.

God makes a twig by taking Tree’s index finger, lifting it up. Now God fashions an apple in His hands, polishes it on His sleeve, smiles approvingly. God holds the apple up to the twig (finger) of tree. This part is important, practice until God and Tree work very closely together. God attaches the apple to the twig, and slowly God lets go of the apple. Tree has to feel as the apple (God’s hand) touch the twig (Tree’s finger) and then as God’s hand moves away, releasing the apple, the twig (Tree’s finger) will drop at the same rate as God’s release, showing the transfer of the weight of the apple to the twig.

Done properly, the twig will bend significantly, (showing the weight of the apple on the tiny twig), while the end of the branch, (Tree’s hand), will bend to a lesser degree. God might then look approvingly, perhaps polish the apple one last time with is sleeve.God stands back, looks at the tree, smiles, nods in approval.

After a few seconds God’s smile fades, indicates looking for something, as though there is something missing, stops, indicates having an idea.

God takes handful of dirt, forms a rabbit’s body, ending with long floppy ears. God picks up rabbit, cradles it in His arm, strokes its form, hand goes over the head, down the neck, across the back, show the poofy tail.
