Three young friends meet a street vendor advertising various brands of “fun.” The price? Their time. It seems a simple exchange, but while one of the young people shows interest in the vendor’s wares, the other two have misgivings.
This allegorical play seriously contemplates where and why we spend our time, but without labeling specific activities as good or bad. Rather, in the tradition of parables,demands rigorous self-examination, applicable to many areas of our lives.
This short play has a cast of 4 characters, all gender-neutral, plus a small narratorial role that can be filled either by a fifth actor or by one of the four main players. The play runs 8-9 minutes and meets A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) convention guidelines for One-Act Plays.
