Alternative Apologies


So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. (Genesis 50:17)

Phoenix and Remy, Professional Lifestyle Coaches, are here to free us from ever having to apologize again! They have three alternatives–Staying Positive, Blaming the Other Person, and Making Excuses–that are sure to work wonders in our relationships. Take their advice for dealing with accidentally-harmed pigs and insensitive ankle comments, and your life will be flooded with sunshine. (So. Much. Sunshine.)

This comic, tongue-in-cheek skit exposes our innate reluctance to say “I’m sorry” and challenges us to seek forgiveness in humility when apologies truly are necessary. With a cast of 2 characters, both female, the skit runs 5-6 minutes in performance and requires no props. Alternative Apologies fulfills Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) convention guidelines for Dramatic Dialogues, as well as Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS) junior fine arts competition rules for Duet Acting.
