Work in Progress

The Little Revolution By: Tamara Peachy
Cast List Rachel Linheart Daniel White Peter Lock Alex Dalve
ACT 1 SCENE 1

Low-end studio apartment in Washington DC. Room is cluttered with Pro-Life protest signs, and Pro-Life flyers are stacked on the desk and coffee table. RACHEL is sitting at the desk, typing on a laptop computer. DANIEL is using a stencil to create another Pro-Life sign that will read: If It’s Not A Baby, Then You’re Not Pregnant.
Rachel: (Stops typing) It’s useless. I’m useless. DANIEL: You’re not useless. Rachel: I’ll just summarize my thoughts in a flowery tweet. Who needs a lengthy article? DANIEL: (Annoyed) Not the twitter argument again. Rachel: Who wants to read a brainy article about injustice when one can read a Facebook status about farts? DANIEL: You are delusional. There are thousands of intellectual activists salivating for a tantalizing read. Rachel: You live in an activist bubble. DANIEL: A what? Rachel: An activist bubble.

Help, Make me Jealous

Sing Zion Sing. I wish for her lips to sing the praise I was unable to sing. The words robbed from a prostitute. The wife of the lamb.
She tosses her head like a lion,
but turns away from the mane, her protector.
I ask her to sing as I am mute and paralyzed.
A child in torment, a product of divorce.
God loves his child who is neglected by a mother.
Mommy, I cry. Mommy, I am falling from your arms.

Trouble on every side, in parallel universes and at the big bang.
Step forward to the direction they gave.

Hoping there isn’t a cliff or a lion
because I am only a child
in a kingdom for the poor, weak, and lowly.
My capacity to fly or fight is based on this spirit made of chemicals unseen.

I Know Not

Wrath of God, I fear it. For I hear of fire, rage, and destruction. I hear of death and blood seeping into the ground. But, I know nothing of justice. For wrath’s fire rests on a heavenly candle, touching muddy earth.
