iSociety Part 1 iLiving

  • Cast Number: 4
  • Run-time: 5 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Romans 15:1
This four part comedy series indicates our obsession to focus on “my” wants, needs, wishes, and “I want it my way” selfishness, “I can make the world in my image” thinking. Having a world in our image is limiting, flawed and self-serving; denying God the power to work in our lives; negating our need for a Savior.
Drama is a play on words as ‘high society’negative adjectives that begin with “i”:
The theme song for the Adaams Family TV show has been adapted into this drama. Midi clips of this music (which we believe to be royalty-free) can be found at many locations on the internet including:

Segment 1 focuses on iLiving, are we spending our time and energy struggling to force our way or are we spending our time and energy learning to live in God’s will. We need to resist the urge to circle ourselves with only the ideas we like.

Cast: 4
iMan (father)
iLady (wife)
iBoy (son)
iGirl (daughter)

Set, lighting, costumes: standard

Sound: music for song, sound of someone knocking

Props: small mirror for each actor

Special Instructions:
all actors are “high society” and looking down their noses at others. I see speech as being like Thurston Howell of the old Gilligans Island TV show. I suggest that the song be sung by offstage or recorded voices and have the actors mime the emotions of the words, however it is possible to have the actors sing the song.
All words beginning with “i” and followed by a capitalized letter will be pronounced “I” as in iMan pronounced “I man”.
In the song, the final line in each verse “The iFirst iFamily” is meant to not quite fit in to the song lyrics.

Sample of Script - Segment 1 iLiving

iFamily are sitting around admiring themselves in their mirrors, there is a knock, all react in shock, look at each other, unable to comprehend

iMan: Whatever can that be, disturbing my iFamily?

Another knock heard

iLady: iMan, if my . . beautiful . . ears do not deceive me, . . I fear it may be an . . outsider . .

iBoy: Oh no, iLady, iMan! Surely not an . . . outsider!

all actors react in horror, biting fingernails, crouching down

iGirl: Oh iBoy, how could any . . outsider . . get into my gated iCommunity of iSolation?
iMan: Well iGirl, I must admit that I did see what appeared to be an . . outsider . . just beyond the high and iMpenetrable walls of iSolation when I drove my iLimousine in last night, coming home from my iOffice.

iLady, horrified: Oh iMan, don’t tell me we will have to move again!

iMan: Well, fact is iLady, I am afraid we will have to move again!

iLady, angry: I asked you not to tell me that iMan! (breaks into tears)

iMan comforts iLady without actually touching her

iMan: There, there iLady, but you know that when an iCommunity becomes . . . iCommon . . . there is nothing for an iFamily to do but . . relocate.

iBoy: Will you rent an iHaul to haul our iFurniture iMan?

iMan: Please iBoy, this is not the time when I can make those kind of iDecisions.

iLady: What an iShame iMan! . . And it all started when the city iFathers here in iSolation allowed that . . . church . . to move in.
