      Main characters:
      1. An ordinary family who spends time reading, singing, praying, eating
      etc.

      2. A rough looking couple wearing shabby clothes.

      3. A person of authority. This can be a person wearing the garb of a
      military commander, a business executive, a priest/elder/bishop/leader
      of any religion, a political leader etc.

      4. Three persons - one with his ears closed; one with his eyes closed;
      one with his mouth closed

      Before the curtain opens:

      Opening statement by a member from the skit team: "This is a skit
      adapted from the famous Bible Parable of the Good Samaritan. All
      characters appearing in this skit (except the Scripture) are fictitious.

      Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely
      coincidental."

      A member from the skit team reads the below passage:
      St. Luke chapter 10; verses 29 to 37:
      But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my
      neighbor?"

      Then Jesus answered and said: "A certain man went down from
      Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his
      clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

      Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him,he passed by on the other side.

      Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and
      passed by on the other side.

      But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion.

      So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

      On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, `Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.'

      So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?"

      And he said, "He who showed mercy on him."

      Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

      Scene 1

      All members of the ordinary family enters the stage and they sit on the corner of the stage. They are just relaxing - one person is reading, one is with an laptop computer and another is eating some thing etc.

      Person of authority enters the stage in all pomp followed by Three
      persons.

      The three persons (one with his ears closed; one with his eyes closed;
      one with his mouth closed) go and stand at the opposite corner of the
      stage from the ordinary family, but faces the audience.

      Person of authority: Walks across the stage once or twice to demonstrate his power and pomp. Then points to the ordinary family and shouts, "He is reading a book; he is the devil - D E V I L".

      Three persons: Nod their heads together in agreement while displaying
      fear on their faces. They keep their eyes, ears and mouth closed due to fear.

      Ordinary family: Stands up and prays.

      Person of authority: "They are praying; they all are evil - E V I
      L".

      Three persons: Nod their heads together in agreement while displaying
      fear on their faces. They keep their eyes, ears and mouth closed due to fear.

      Person of authority: Comes and give a kick to one or two members of the ordinary family. Throws away the Bible and other books they were
      reading. All family members are lying helplessly on stage.

      Three persons: Claps their hands in agreement to the Person of
      authority, but with fear on their faces, demonstrating that they are not happy with the whole situation but are fearful for their own lives.

      Scene 2

      The rough looking couple enters the stage.

      Person of authority: Points to the rough looking couple and says,
      "They are evil people, look at their clothes."

      Three persons: Nod their heads together in agreement while displaying
      fear on their faces. They keep their eyes, ears and mouth closed due to fear.

      Rough looking couple helps the hapless family members to get on their
      feet. Then they all sit together talking and eating.

      Person of authority: Laughs loudly to mock the rough looking couple and the ordinary family.

      Three persons: claps their hands in agreement to the Person of
      authority, but with fear on their faces.

      All people leave the stage and curtain falls.
