Christmas Trappings

Book By: Brian Shoop
Play #: 1445
Pages: 35 pgs
Cast: 2 m, 2 w, 1 flexible, 1 child, extra voices

Rev. Cordell opens the play as he recalls a Christmas some 20 years earlier when he was trapped with a handful of other strangers by a blizzard in a small Oklahoma diner. He wasn't a pastor then, but a young man full of questions. Seamlessly, we join the group: the owner of the diner who is set in her ways, a middle-aged man with a secret past, an edgy newspaper reporter from out of town, and a young mother completely on her own with a small child who does not speak. No one in the lonesome diner is quite sure of the real meaning of life or where theirs should lead. While getting to know one another, accusations are made, painful secrets are revealed, fears are exposed, and a life-altering discussion ensues with new meaning for all. Finally rescuers arrive, but the strangers have already been rescued through God's love and they find freedom from the "trappings" that have held them back. Performance Time: 40-45 minutes.
