Sample of script:
R1: So Jesus came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.
R2: Jacob's well was there. Jesus, tired from his journey, sat down there at the well. It was about noon.
R3: A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."
Actor: Why can’t I just be like other people? Most of my friends seem to have a life that, well, kind of hums along, know what I mean? No highlight reel stuff, but nothing approaching a disaster either. Then there’s me.
R1: The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan woman, for a drink?" For Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.
R2: Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
R3: The woman said to him, "Sir, you do not even have a bucket and the cistern is deep; where then can you get this living water?
Actor: From the heights of success to the depths of despair, all within a few ticks, seems like. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I have had a particularly difficult life. Like I say, I have had my share of success, my share of the good times, friends, money.
