CONFESSION (A drama for two actors)
by D. M. Larson
From the play "Holy Ground" ISBN-13: 978-1502875990
Listen to the play:
Lights are dim and focus on a corner of the church which the
confessional. We see Jude and Delia but they are divided by a partition.
I'm scared, Father.
Scared? Of what?
God will protect you.
I wish I could believe that.
You can trust God.
I fear God. I don't trust him. I am afraid what he is going to do. I am afraid of what will happen every day... If I go outside, what will be waiting for me? There's something wrong out there. Something's not right.
Things are changing. I have sensed it too.
What do we do?
Trust in God.
Back to that
again... How can I trust him? How can I trust the one who took my
father away? How can I trust the one who turned my mother into a drunk? How I
trust the one who put me in the house of someone who abused me? Every day
I lived in fear. What would happen if I stepped outside my room? I
didn't know what was waiting for me. I never knew what would wake up that
day. The creep, the angry one, the monster... I didn't even want to get
out of bed anymore. It got too hard. I was too scared. I
would hide and pray to God to help me. But God never did. My
childhood gone and my only escape was adulthood.
You blamed God for all that?
Even if God didn't do it why did he let it happen?
He will never
give you more than you can handle.
I can't handle it though... I'm going crazy.. The fear is crippling me... I have to drag myself out of bed and force myself to live each day... Sure, I put on this happy face... People think I am pretty cheerful... No one cares to see the pain under my skin... The pain that's ripping at my soul.
Have you sinned?
Are you a sinner?
I don't know...
Do you think about sinning?
All the time.
What stops you?
Fear... Fear of what might happen to me... See, I'm afraid of everything.
Your fear could be a blessing.
It keeps you from doing wrong... It keep you from doing anything evil.
I hope so.
Do you feel tempted?
All the time.
What tempts you?
I'm tempted to give up... It's too hard to keep living.
Perhaps you need something to live for.
We will ask God to give you something to live for... We are all born with a purpose.
I just want to know what it is.
