Characters

Summary

Script

(Two people - Pl and P2 - stand centre stage with hands down. Drama begins as both of them strike a shielded frightened pose from which they fearfully unfold.)
Person 1:
Hey, where are we? This is really strange!!
Person 2:
The last thing I remember is that truck headed straight for us and then ....
hey, you don't suppose that we're dead, do you?
Person 1:
Oh no! We must have been killed! It sure is strange to be dead! Nothing like I expected.
Person 2:
That guy must have been drunk! I bet my Dad's car is totalled ... if I weren't dead, my Dad would kill me!
Person 1:
I don't believe it! I'm going to miss my wedding on Saturday! After all the planning and dreaming, it's all over ... finished! Oh well, maybe they can use the flowers for the funeral instead.
Person 2:
I just realised that I'll miss my Calculus exam on Monday - ALL RIGHT!!! I was sure to fail that one!
(Enter Angel walking towards Person 1)
Person 2:
Hey! Who's that?
Person 1:
I think ... I think it's an angel.
(Angel starts to guide Person 1 away)
Person 2:
Wait!! WAIT!! Where are you two going? Don't leave me here alone!
Person 1:
The angel is taking me to heaven. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour just a few years ago. I'm a Christian!
Person 2:
What's all this about? You never told me you were a Christian! Hey, let me come with you ... I'll be a Christian, too!
Person 1:
Well, I'm sorry, but it's too late! You can't accept Christ now ... it's a choice you have to make while you're still alive.
(Enter Demon walking towards Person 2 and starting to pull him away.)
Person 2:
Hey! What are you doing? Where are you taking me? Who is this? I don't want to go with you!
Person 1:
I'm so sorry!! If you never accepted Christ in your life-time, you have to go ... well, you are condemned to ... he's taking you to Hell!
Person 2:
What? You mean you KNEW all along that if I died without Christ I would go to hell, and you NEVER told me? But you're my friend! Why didn't you tell me?
Person 1:
I thought you might be offended if I forced my beliefs on you. I thought maybe you would ask if you were interested! I never knew that something like this would happen! I guess I never really thought about it - what can I say? I'm so sorry!!! (Person 2 fights with Demon as he is pulled off the stage.)
Person 2:
No ... I don't want to go! Why didn't you tell me? (Last line tapers of as he is dragged off to hell.)
(Drama ends as all players freeze in their last position. Person 1 miserably watching Person 2 reluctantly being dragged away.)
