AUTHOR: Welcome one and all. I extend my warmest welcome to Theophilus, who so enjoyed my previous plays. And so, to the play!
Jerusalem, town setting. The 11 apostles (PETER, JAMES ANDREW, PHILLIP, BARTHOLOMEW, MATTHEW, THOMAS, SECOND JAMES, THADDEUS and SIMON) are walking through a square.
THADDEUS: Im telling you, we should have Chinese. Its too warm for curry.
BARTHOLOMEW: I agree, curry would just sit too heavily in the stomach.
THOMAS: (incredulously) Too heavily in the stomach?! Its curry, its MEANT to be heavy!
MATTHEW: (Yorkshire Accent) aye, no-ones disputing that, what were saying is the weather conditions make heavy food undesirable.
THADDEUS: Precisely. We should have a lighter, but equally delicious meal from the Far East.
PHILLIP: But if we have Chinese, we have that same old argument about whether we have Cantonese style of Szechuan style.
SIMON: So, we have a vote
PHILLIP: But we always

Dark, dimly lit room, stuffed with some forgotten furniture. For some reasons it reminds of a chapel and a barn simultaneously. Its actual status is irrelevant.
Someone Enters. He can be hardly seen in the weak light.
Boo. Anybody here?...
(Louder) Anybody here who wants to kill meh bloody vampaiar?...
Silence. Fine. Hope this means Im alone. At last.
Whats the goddamn habit to look for death? Am I a curiosity of some kind? Or, maybe, its kinda some stupid heroic deed to rush at me with swords and spears? Oh, actually that guys been very close to ruining my last shirt today. (Sigh) Ignorant, stupid people, deprived of last shreds of logic and common sense! Look, if a vampire walks in the sunlight, isnt it clear that garlic and silver probably cant be enough to destroy him? Sweet Death, it seems like people outside Carmandia are all uned

Nun describes the Stations of the Cross to the audience. She explains that Mel Gibson's film is actually more of a description of the Catholic Stations of the Cross than just a straight biblical portrayal of the Passion. (Somewhere in the scene she needs to call a precocious child who is a plant in the audience up to stand beside her for talking. After finishing she will drag him off the stage by his ear while admonishing him for interrupting and telling him he needs to go to confession.)
[Above the stage is a projection of subtitles of the plays themes and during foreign language sequences the dialog.]
1st Station: Jesus is condemned:
(Symbolic for all of our sins being responsible for the act of condemning the innocent savior. This type of commentary would be above all of the Station Scenes)
On the Curtain is a projected image of the first station from some catholic church. A Priest and two alter boys holding candles are in front of the curtain.

CAST OF CHARACTERS
(In order of their appearance)
Maggie Spell, a tired Southern woman in her seventies.
The Male Nurse, a physically strong, young man in his early thirties.
Cory Weinberg, the old woman's nephew, a young man around the age of twenty with tattoos on his forearms.
All action takes place in the nursing home bedroom.
SCENE: Afternoon in the nursing home suite. The inward-opening door, complete with frame, is stage right, and the audience should be able to see that the room number is 77. Walls or backdrops are not necessary. A twin bed with white sheets sits upstage right with the foot facing the audience. A bookcase with only a photo frame and a small plastic bottle is positioned upstage, just to the right of the bed, out of the reach of anyone in the bed. An empty serving tray stands near the right side of the bed without blocking any of the action.
AT RISE: MAGGIE rests in her bed and stares st

Rebecca: A 14-year-old girl looking for her identity at the moment. Her clothes, hairstyle and mannerisms change drastically throughout the play: she's the proper daughter, then the apathetic emo kid, and finally the preppy middle-school girl.
Rebecca's parents: Every bit the 'proper' parents. Rebecca's father wears a suit and carry a suitcase, as though he's just come back from work, while her mother wears simple clothes and an apron. Both are in their late 30s.
Trisha: 15 years old, Rebecca's preppy best friend. Cheerful and easygoing type. Her outfit in the play consists of tight jeans, a pink T-shirt and high-heeled sandals.
Raven: 16 years old, part of a goth group. Everything about her appearance (clothes, hairstyles, manner of speaking etc.) must be exaggerated. She speaks with an obviously fake British accent.
