Extracts from this document...


Long overdue Conversation Topic / Scripture : Using the time God gives us; the importance of family; Mat. 20:6 "About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, "Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?" Setting: Anywhere. The audience will assume that this is just a father having a conversation with his daughter, Could be in the kitchen, the living room, outside on the porch...anywhere. Characters: Don - the father. Tender hearted, he's nervous, uncomfortable with this conversation, but intent on finally doing this right. Scene: Don is sitting on a chair facing the audience, wringing his hands, looking nervous but determined as he begins this conversation. Don: This is a little awkward...Just bear with me honey, we need to talk about some things... I probably should have done this sooner, but you caught me off guard...you know? ...read more.


Okay, so here's the big one...it's uh...well, this one's really important...boys are...uh...boys are great...but, they're still boys you know? So you've got to be really careful. You've got to be smart honey. You're so smart, and funny. And you're really talented and you're beautiful. I'm not just saying that because I'm your dad. You really are.

never gave up on you honey, no matter what I said...I never gave up...I hope you hear me saying that, I wish it wouldn't have taken so long... (A long pause as he tries to pull himself together) (He stands up and gets a bouquet of flowers out from behind the chair he was sitting on)...I need to get going...but I just wanted to let you know that I love you...(he places the flowers on the ground in front of him)...I'm so sorry we didn't talk sooner...I really thought we had more time... ...(arranges the flowers just the way he wants them)...I brought you sunflowers, I couldn't find any tulips this time, but I'll keep looking...I miss you so much, we all do. (he stands up to go and pantomimes brushing off the head stone)...I gotta go, I love you...I'll see you next week sweetie... (He turns to go, looks back at the flowers, on the ground, and walks away slowly. Lights out.) ...read more.
