Posted via admin

Cast
Sam – the owner of the coffee shop, all around nice gal,
Carmen – town gossip, knows everything about everyone
Jana – Carmen’s best friend
Kelly – a coffee shop regular
Lucy – very skeptical, doesn’t believe until she has proof

Setting
A coffee shop, sort of a “Cheers” type setting, you know, where everybody knows your name. Sam is behind the counter, and there are four empty chairs in front. Jana Enters.

SAM
Good afternoon Jana. What can I get for you?

JANA
Oh hi Sam, I’ll have the usual. Have you seen Carmen yet today?

SAM
Starts making Jana’s drink
Nope not yet.

JANA
Well she told me to meet her here as soon as I could. I wonder what she wants

SAM
Who knows with Carmen, I bet she’s got some juice on somebody.
Hands Jana her drink

JANA
Yeah, that’s Carmen for ya.

Enter KELLY

JANA
Hi Kelly

SAM
Hey Kelly, what can I get you today.

KELLY
Hi Jana, Sam, I’ll have my usual. Say Jana, did you get Carmen’s message?

JANA
Yeah, I wonder what she wants to tell us.

KELLY
She seemed pretty excited about it, I wonder…

SAM
Handing KELLY her drink
Carmen is always excited about something though

JANA
You know what I think it is?!

KELLY
What?

JANA
I think she met a guy

KELLY
No way, a guy?

JANA
You yourself said that she seemed extra excited about it. And what else would Carmen get all that excited about except a guy.

KELLY
You know, maybe you’re right

JANA
of course I’m right.

Enter LUCY

LUCY
Hey guys did you get Carmen’s message

KELLY
Hi Lucy, we sure did

JANA
In fact we were just talking about it. What do you think she’s so excited about?

SAM
These girls think Carmen met a guy.

LUCY
A guy? Well I was thinking she got a puppy, but a guy is good.

JANA
Whatever Lucy.

SAM
So what can I get for you to drink?

LUCY
Oh I’ll have the usual. A guy? Really?

Enter CARMEN

CARMEN
Hey everyone!

EVERYONE
Hey Carmen.

CARMEN
She sits down
Sam, I’ll have the usual.

SAM
Coming right up

JANA
So…

CARMEN
So what?

KELLY
So what was the big news?.

LUCY
What’s got you so excited, that you call us all and tell us to get over here and…

CARMEN
Oh, that so.

KELLY
Come on just tell us

CARMEN
Well theres this guy.

JANA
So it was a guy

LUCY
No puppy?

CARMEN
Yeah a guy. I met him just the other day. He’s new in town.

KELLY
Oohh tell me more!

CARMEN
Well he’s this CEO of this really big company. He’s got employees all over the world.

JANA
What kind of work do they do?

CARMEN
All sorts of stuff. Like once he told one of his employees, that lived in the desert, to build this huge boat, because is was going to rain really bad and there would be a flood.

LUCY
Really?

CARMEN
Yeah, and the employee did it.

KELLY
Was there a flood

CARMEN
You bet, a horrible one too.

SAM
Wow, what else does he do?

CARMEN
Oh, get this, some of his employees were having a picnic on a boat, and he told one of them to go walk on the water. And he did. I mean he really walked on the water. Just like it was solid ground.

JANA
Wow? How could he do that? How did his employee just walk on water?

CARMEN
This guy says that his employees have faith in him. Faith that he knows what’s best. They trust him

KELLY
That’s some faith.

CARMEN
Yeah, and once. Now this is a weird one. He told his employees to march around this big building, for seven days. Then the building would fall down.

SAM
Let me guess, it did.

CARMEN
Yup. Cool huh!

LUCY
Cool? Weird is more like it. I mean who does exactly what their boss says? I mean what if their boss is wrong.

CARMEN
This guy is never wrong.

LUCY
sarcastically
Really?

CARMEN
Yeah, well that’s what he says.

LUCY
Well I wouldn’t trust a guy who told me to go walk on the water. That’s just crazy.

KELLY
Even if he had proven that he knew what was best?

LUCY
Personally I would have to see it to believe it.

CARMEN
But this guy, he says that the faith that his employees have in him is different. They don’t have to see to believe. Its like they believe and then they see.
