As A Child

  • Cast Number: 1
  • Run-time: 8 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Luke 18:15

the deep simplicity of a child. We have lost the ability to trust, to confide. Lost innocence. We are too quick to judge and not to listen.

Sample of Script:

Sound clip #1: . . . and it looks like more trouble for Dr. Adam Woodbury as many of his patients are considering filing lawsuits against the longtime doctor. It appears his patients are questioning the methods that Woodbury has practiced for over 30 years. While the legal battle continues . . .

Actor, visibly frustrated, “changes” channel.

Sound clip #2: . . . so far two parents have decided to remain in the classroom while class is in session, monitoring the teacher’s methods. Many students feel their parents are going too far, while school board officials, officially at least, welcome the parental interaction.

Actor “changes” channel.

Sound clip #3: . . . all I can say is that I just want to warn everyone not to trust anyone! I mean, everyone is out for number one, and don’t think you are somehow going to get something even slightly worthwhile without paying a huge price! People! Wake up and smell the coffee!

In extreme frustration, actor “turns off” the TV and throws the remote on the chair. He walks to downstage center as he gathers his thoughts.

Actor: (Frustrated.) This is getting ridiculous! What are we coming to? A world where we are taught not to see good in people, but to judge them first? Pre-judge? We seem to jump at the chance to crucify someone for their wrongdoings without giving them a chance to defend themselves! Ridiculous!

Why can’t we trust anymore? What has happened to our basic trust? We live in a society where we are taught to question, doubt and be suspicious, rather than to absorb, trust and understand. Those who don’t raise questions are labeled as irresponsible, uncaring! I’m not saying I shouldn’t be on guard, watchful, but is it necessarily irresponsible when I am trusting qualified people with my best interests? Isn’t that what they are there for?
