I've been looking for possible one-act plays to perform for competition in the future, and this will definitely be one to consider! This drama shares with audiences the theme of forgiveness, a very important and sometimes overlooked virtue. I also love how the play is faith-based and centered upon family (characters include father, mother, and three daughters). The playwright does a wonderful job of building up to the climax of the story, with Miriam finally telling her father the sin she has committed. It could make for a very intense moment on stage for father and daughter. While the play carries an overall serious tone, the youngest daughter of Simon has a very child-like and humorous nature that could really break up some of the tension of the story. Miriam, marked as an adulteress, has a very good monologue for a strong female actress to perform. The script contains a small cast with a stationary, simple set which would be perfect for a one-act competition! And while the story centers around the sin of adultery, the content is very tame and would be suitable for high school students to perform. Excellent script!
