Shorter Pieces for Easter Week

At this writing (end of February), it is getting too close to the wire to begin work on a larger production for Easter. But there is still time to find something smaller—perhaps to illustrate a message, or to add into a larger production already in rehearsals. Here are a few suggestions...

Blinders

If you would like something with teeth in it, our three-character sketch, Blinders, is just the ticket. This sketch imagines a moment in which Nicodemus informs Caiaphas that his allegiance now lies with the accused Jesus of Nazareth. It is an understatement to say that "tempers flare." This script includes plenty of juicy, high-tension dialogue as Nicodemus makes his case to the stunned yet obdurate high priest.

Grace

Though longer, the one-act Grace has just two characters, so, if your two actors are experienced, they could work it up in time. Technically this play does not take place around Easter Sunday, but during Jesus' last forty days on earth—that is, between Christ's resurrection and ascension. The one-act does include, however, a powerful monologue by the apostle Peter, in which he relives the terrible moment he returned to Golgotha after the Savior's burial, and sees the empty cross still standing.

Communion: Five Monologues... for Easter

This collection of monologues is our most popular script. Communion includes monologues by the Apostle John, Apostle Peter, Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus, and Mary Magdalene—all centered around each person's experience with Jesus' death and/or resurrection. The scripts in this collection can be used in any number of situations, for years to come.

No matter how you celebrate Christ's resurrection this year, we pray that your Easter will be one in which our Savior is glorified and praised for His matchless sacrifice on our behalf.
