Sample of script:


Tyler, Morgan, Payton sitting upstage

Jamie comes onstage to downstage location, Payton rolls eyes, looks angry


Morgan:      What’s wrong Payton, something you don’t like about Jamie being here?


Payton:       It’s a free country Morgan, I guess anyone can come and go anywhere they want to.


Tyler:        Wow, Payton! . . . Doesn’t sound like you are too glad to see Jamie.


Payton:       Guess you could say Jamie isn't at the top of my Christmas card list.


Morgan:      Did something happen between you and Jamie?


Payton:       Let’s just say we have issues. .  But that’s OK, since I am a Christian I have forgiven Jamie.


VOG:        You maybe are forgetting my instructions are to forgive and forget. Sounds to me you are forgiving and remembering.


all actors react to VOG


Morgan:      You scare me when you do that!


VOG:        Sometimes maybe that’s a good thing.


Payton:       But God, if you remember I prayed about it and I said I forgave Jamie, and I even asked you to forgive him too.


VOG:        Quick instruction for you Payton . . .  when you pray don’t give me instructions, just report for duty.


Payton:       Sorry God.


VOG:        Yes Payton, I sense you are indeed sorry. . . Now back to this issue with Jamie.


Payton:       That’s just a matter between me and Jamie.


VOG:        Actually Payton, that’s where you are wrong. If you talked with Jamie about this . . . which I strongly suggest you do . .  you would actually find out Jamie has no idea what you are talking about.


Payton:       Well isn't that just great! . . Here I follow your instructions and I forgive Jamie for his trespasses or debts or whatever against me . .  and he doesn’t even remember.
