iSociety Part 2 iFamily

  • Cast Number: 4
  • Run-time: 5 minutes
  • Bible Reference: James 4:1-4
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”:

Segment 2 the iFamily Are we living together avoiding the hassles of interacting? We are all living under the same roof but we are as far apart as the stars? Everyone has what they need in their own little space in the house. We are so engaged with our own activities and our own entertainments that separation happens until there is no connection anymore. Selfishness is one of the most basic causes of problems between people everywhere. Everybody is out for themselves.

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, roll of duct tape

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 2 – the iFamily

iFamily are sitting sitting at various parts of the stage reading, snoozing, etc.
iBoy walks within a few feet of iGirl who reacts

iGirl: Will you puhleasseee allow me my iSpace, iBoy.

iBoy: Oh iGirl I never came anywhere near your precious iSpace!

iLady: iChildren, play nicely and don’t make so much iNoise! You know how my iEars bleed when I have to deal with iNoise!

iMan: Let us all try to live in iHarmony.

iGirl: iHarmony with a iDiot for an iBrother? I do not iThink so!

iMan: I fully realize how difficult it may be for the iFamily to iExist together in close iQuarters, trying to iVoid iNteracting with each iOther. I have an iDea.

iLady, very impressed: Oh iChildren, your iFather has an iDea!

iMan: Well, iLady, iThank you, I am rather iProud of my iDea actually.

iGirl, proudly: Oh iMan, tell me your iDea . .. (looks menacingly at iBoy), too bad iBoy couldn’t have an iDea some iTime, for iNstance like leaving our iHouse twice and coming back once!

iBoy, mad: Oh iYeah?

iGirl, mad: iYeah!

iLady, firmly: iChildren, I have iWarned you! My very sensitive iEars! . . Now then iMan, tell us about your iDea to create iHarmony in our iHome.
