A three segment drama about the need to get get involved in missions outreach

Sample of script:

First scene opens as spotlight comes up on Mildred and Joanne.

Mildred: Oh, Joanne, (emphasizing) daaaaling! How ever have you been? I had heard that you have been quite ill for over a month!

Joanne: You didn’t hear, Mildred? (Disappointed.) I’ve been away in Africa for 6 weeks!

Mildred: Africa? Six weeks, you say! Well, (laughing, embarrassed), well, I guess I didn’t get my facts from a reliable source!

Joanne:: No, I guess you didn’t. Seems like we haven’t really kept in touch that well!

Mildred: Sometimes I wonder if we should get involved in ways that can keep us more in touch with our friends.

Joanne: Yes, one thing I learned in Africa is that we need to be more in touch, not just with friends, but with people around the world.

Spot light goes off as Mildred and Joanne freeze, then comes up on Rhonda and Bev. They are sitting side-by-side, but not really acknowledging each other.

Rhonda picks up her purse and starts to rifle through. As she is rummaging, a book falls out.

Bev picks it up and looks at the cover.

Bev (Reads the cover out loud.) Spray-painting chimneys 101. Is this your book?

Rhonda (Obviously embarrassed, quickly grabs the book and puts it back in her purse.) What? Oh, no! I’m just . well,. . holding it for someone.

Bev (Disappointed.) Oh, I thought that I actually found someone else who loved chimney spray-painting.

Rhonda You mean you like to spray-paint chimneys?

Bev: Well of course! I realize it is something not many people are into lately, but I love it!

Rhonda (Excited.) Me too! I was so embarrassed to tell anyone because it is such an extraordinary thing to be interested in! Some of my friends call me a chimney thumper!

Bev I know what you mean! My family doesn’t understand what I see in it – they think all chimneys should be brown!

Rhonda (Gasps in disbelief.) No! Why does everything else in the world get to be colorful, and chimneys get to be brown?!

Bev: That’s my feeling exactly! Oh, I wish I would have known this about you sooner! We have so much to talk about!

Rhonda: We must get together soon! You have to come to my chimney workshop! We are in touch with people from all over the world who want to learn more about chimneys.
