Act I

Scene I

.

Union City, New Jersey. Central Avenue, Saint Anthony of Padua Church. Morning.

Stage Black.

(Lights up. Church empty. Sitting alone. After Mass. Slight chill. Lighting dim, brighter at altar.)

.

ME: (out loud, but in a low volume, slightly louder than a whisper) So God, what is it you want me to do today?

.

GOD: (very matter of fact, almost as if with a shrug) Love…just love.

.

Stage to black.

.

Curtain.
