When it comes to making them laugh or making a point, it doesn't have to be either-or. These scripts address the issues of abortion, marital strife, trusting God, church, safety, spiritual gifts, battling the devil, and struggling to live a life of faith. It's a serious moral wrapped inside a slightly silly sense of humor. Each drama is written for two actors.
Here are the individual scripts. Unlike the full collection, none of the scripts are DRM enabled, meaning you are free to share them. If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle app that will let you use it on all your mobile devices.
Abandon all Hope – This duet explores how difficult it can be to trust God when times just seem to get tougher and tougher. Sometimes a Sunday School answer isn’t enough.
Computer Couple – This duet examines why we sometimes need a break for all our online communication. Too much time on the internet can hurt the relationships we value the most, and there’s something to be said for the value of face-to-face communication.
Down that Road – This duet examines the struggle of facing down our own temptations and helping friends face down theirs. Often, the ones who can help us the most are the ones who’ve been down the road we’re on.
First Feline Church – This duet examines Cat and Dog theology and the church. If you feed a dog, it thinks you’re God. If you feed a cat, it thinks it’s God. We can have the same sense of entitlement in our Christian lives, and taken to extremes, it’s not a pretty sight.
Gilda Does Something Funny – This duet examines learning how to trust God to work out the finer details, using the example of one of the funniest women of all time, Gilda Radner. That’s right, a Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time-Player is a spiritual lesson for us all.
Mabel and Ethel – This duet examines the frustrations of parenting children you may not like all the time. These two older women must also confront the fact that their children are grown and living lives of their own, and how scary it can be to trust in God when it comes to their kids.
One Cross Martyr – This duet examines what does and doesn’t count as suffering for Christ. Sometimes we think that being a general nuisance counts as martyrdom, when in fact, we’re just being insufferable jerks who are doing more harm than good for the Gospel message.
Pro-Life Church – This duet examines what it truly means to be pro-life. It’s easy to say you’re against abortion, but what happens when it’s teenage girls in your own community? How can you say you’re pro-life when you reject the girls who keep their babies?
Safehouse Sam – This duet examines why always avoiding adversity can lead to a very empty life. Yes, a life of faith, of going where God leads, can put us in some dangerous situations. Sometimes life-threatening. But sometimes taking that risk is how we minister to the world, and sequestering yourself away from all danger means you never do any good, and you never grow as a person or experience the blessings God has for you
Satan is Coming to Town – This duet examines why the fight against evil needs more than empty gestures and feel-good symbolism. Some of the Enemy’s biggest weapons are out hubris and pride. To truly combat evil, we’re going to have to humble ourselves, have some faith, and roll up our sleeves.
The Book of Jason – This duet examines why the book of Jonah is still very relevant to our lives today. We see the story from an entirely different perspective, but the message is the same. Our hero struggles with the idea that God loves and forgives people he hates, and he’s not to keen on being an instrument of God’s grace to those very people. It’s something we all can still relate to today.
The Call to Serve – This duet examines what it means to truly answer God’s call to service. Sometimes it means abandoning what we think are the plans. It can mean choosing between good and better. Occasionally it means the people closest to us, those who share our faith, will question our decision when God’s plans interrupt theirs.
The Counselor is [In] – Taking a page from Charlie Brown, this duet examines why being a Christian is not a guarantee that you won’t have problems. Our main character is having a tough time of it and can’t seem to catch a break. What’s worse, the usual Sunday School answers don’t help, as he’s doing everything right and still struggling. He exposes the dirty little secret that we Christians like to keep to ourselves. Perhaps it’s time we’re more honest with each other.
To Your Own Powers Be True – This duet examines why it does no good to mope about how you aren’t gifted, because that won’t change anything, and you ignore the ways you are. While this duet involves superheroes, it can be anyone who’s jealous of another’s gifts or talents. It’s important to understand that when we embrace our own gifts, we can do truly great and heroic things.
What a Man Wants – This duet examines why communication in marriage is essential. He wants to tell her how he really feels, and she doesn’t understand him.
What a Woman Wants – This duet examines why communication in marriage is essential. She wants to tell him how she really feels, and he doesn’t understand her.
What They Both Want – This duet examines why communication in marriage is essential. They want to tell each other how they really feel, and neither one truly understands the other.
