The Wilting Press – twenty minute play about life

THE WILTING PRESS – TWENTY MINUTE PLAY ABOUT LIFE AND HELPING OTHERS

Imagine if you had a problem, one that you couldn’t find a solution to. You don’t want to ‘look for help’ at this stage, preferring to try to sort it out yourself. What if you then went for a walk in the park?  On a bench a Wanderer jovially sits with a tattered book in this twenty minute play. The book is a wilting flower press full of the wanderer’s memories.  You sit down. You talk about love, family, life, and what it means to have a conversation that matters.

Three strangers encounter the Wanderer. Burdened by their respective circumstances, each Stranger shares their time and woes with the Wanderer, hoping to move forward.  And so the Wanderer, armed with words and a wilting press, mends these disillusioned hearts with one phrase: “Care to share your troubles?”

The wanderer asks only for a flower for their press from each stranger in return.  Will we ever find out why the Wanderer helps these people? Perhaps not. But maybe that isn’t important.

A MANGER CAROL – A ONE ACT NATIVITY PLAY

 

Every year, in churches across the United States, children perform the story of the nativity before an audience of proud and excited parents. In many cases a large group of children are dressed up and paraded across the stage while a narrator reads the story of the birth of Christ. Often this tradition becomes boring and commonplace, even though they are acting out the greatest story ever told.

This nativity play is designed to be a little different. It initially starts off with a departure from tradition, by introducing comedic elements into what has become, through habit, a solemn proceeding. At the end the play closes with an important message about Christmas and our Savior Jesus Christ; that the story isn’t about the scenery or the costumes, but about the people in that story. A group of ordinary people who came together to take part in an extraordinary event that changed the world forever.

My hope for this play is that people will enjoy and laugh through the comedy, and then take home the message that Jesus himself often took chances, shook things up, and stepped out in faith, and that we, as his disciples, should do the same.

“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, his precepts! O! Tis easier to keep holidays than commandments.”  – Benjamin Franklin
