Pick Me!

Performance: Lilydale Seventh-day Adventist Church - February 15, 2014
Brief: A short drama on the topic of  how Jesus noticed and ministered to the outcasts, the misfits and those in trouble. And set us an example to do the same.

[a row of 4 chairs, with an isle in the middle, simulating a train. Train sound fx throughout, empty train station image on the screen ]
[ train arrives]

A rough looking, 'homeless' person enters the train and sits on one side.

A obvious Bible holding person runs up and enters the train carrying a Bible, they ALMOST sit next to the homeless person, but realises 'just in time' to avoid and go sit on the opposite side of the train.

Jesus steps 'onto' the train. The Bible reader sees and gets all excited, clearing the spare seat next to them and dusting it off.
Jesus smiles and acknowledges as if to sit with them, but at the last minute sees the homeless person, and chooses to sit with them.

The Fisher

Performance: Lilydale Seventh-day Adventist Church - February 1, 2014
The brief given to Scott: A short play on how Jesus attended some not so spiritual places seeking the lost. He was there not condemning but waiting opportunity to minister to the sinner, rather than condemning them.

On the screen is an island beach front on the left, with a signs post with "night club, pub, casino, brothel" all pointing onto the island. On the right of the image is the ocean. Techo music, flashing lights and drunken laughter comes out the left side door – as if there’s an outrageous party raging on the island.
If possible, there is blue material connecting the left and right of stage, about a meter high, or on the flow draped over any stage edge.

After a few moments of the music, now out of the right side room pokes the front of a cardboard boat (behind and above the 'water curtain') Alternatively, the boat could have been sitting there already, and Jesus just walks into view 'in' the boat.
