I Am The Vine

  • Cast Number: 4
  • Run-time: 15 minutes
  • Bible Reference: John 15:5
Humorous but effective, tells of "serving" as opposed to "being served". Based on John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Have a tall tree trunk-like figure at center stage. Actors are the branches, each branch holds on to individual ropes which are connected to thevine. Costuming should make the characters to look like tree branches, with some leaves glued on to each character.

Cast:

Branch Arthur
Branch Helen
Branch Andrew
Branch Phyllis

Helen: Sure, you can say that! I noticed it wasn’t you that Phyllis brushed up against in that wind last night! I’ve got a great big bruise right here as a result!

Andrew: You know, sometimes I wonder
