Holy Orders

(a play in One act)

 

Act I

 

Scene I

 

Union City, New Jersey. Central Avenue, Saint Anthony of Padua Church. Morning.

 

Stage Black.

 

(Lights up. Church empty. Sitting alone. After Mass. Slight chill. Lighting dim, brighter at altar.)

 

ME: (out loud, but in a low volume, slightly louder than a whisper) So God, what is it you want me to do today?

 

GOD: (very matter of fact, almost as if with a shrug) Love…just love.

 

Stage to black.

 

 

Curtain.
