The Coming of Jed Crest – one act British plays



Oh! The possibilities of believing everything you hear!

Let him who hath understanding reckon the word of the Lord: that the Second Coming shall reveal the fate of the world. The fate of the world will lie in the hands of the One born of a mildly successful rock star and she who runs a cafe.

Foretold by the papers that yellow and recounted by a customer who is not the most generous in his consistent purchases of a cup of tea, Kerry could not be bothered by Colin’s story of the day, in this one-act play… until she hears of the link between her mother, Pat and a man known as Jed Crest. In less than thirty minutes, Kerry discovers the wonder of hearing an unbelievable story whose elements are so incredible that to believe them would be confirmation that she’s mental and at the same time perfectly sane.

After all, a casual conversation has eliminated the notion that Kerry is just a girl who works in a cafe as one who might actually be an integral part of the Second Coming and could very well be the Second Coming itself.
