Ham: What's it doing out there?

Shem: Raining.

Ham: Raining? Again?

Shem:What do you mean, 'again?' It's still raining. It hasn't stopped yet.

Ham: Well gee, how long has it been?

Shem: Uh... I don't know. All I know is I've forgotten what that great, big, bright thing in the sky looks like.

Ham: You mean the sun?

Shem: Yeah. That's it. The sun.

Ham: Hey. Listen. You hear that?

Shem: I don't hear anything.

Ham: Exactly.

Shem: Huh?

Ham: I think it actually stopped raining.

Shem (checking outside): I... I think you're right, brother. Still no sign of that great big fire ball, however.

Japheth (running in): Do you hear that??

Ham (slapping Japheth on the shoulder): Yep. I think it actually stopped.

Shem: Dad! Hey, dad! DDDDDDAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDD!

Noah: What's all this ruckus about? I was just starting to enjoy this new silence.

Shem: Can we go out and play? Please?

Noah: Son, have you looked outside the past, oh, I don't know, thirty days or so?

Shem: Yeah. Nothing but... Oh. Valid point. So you mean we've been on this ark for about forty days and we still have to wait around? This is taking an eternity.

Noah: Forty days is not so much when you are 600 years old.

Ham: You're telling me you don't want to get out of here?

Noah: I never said that. I'm just trying to keep things in perspective.

Japheth: I think my perspective drowned on day three.

Shem: Yours and mine both.

Ham: Me three.

Shem: So how will we know when we can finally go outside?

Noah: The Lord will let us know.

******
Noah: Japheth, grab that log I've been keeping. How long has it been since I sent out that dove?

Japheth: Looks like it's been about a week.

Noah: It is time.

Shem and Ham: Did you just say it's time?

Noah: Yes my sons, it is time.

The door to the ark opens and Noah and his family walk out

Shem (shielding his eyes): What is that thing?

Ham: That would be the elusive sun.

Shem: Not that. (pointing to the rainbow) THAT!

All stare up at the sky in amazement

Booming voice offstage: This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. Never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.

Shem: Pardon me for butting in, Lord, but never again? As in not for all of eternity?

Booming voice offstage (chuckling): Not for all of eternity.

haha, great script. Although I think the 'boys' were a bit older...and married. But I'm sure they were all ready for the sun, the rainbow and the promise of 'never again!' Nice take on the topic.

This was fun. It would be a great play for a Sunday school class to put on for the church. Loved it!

Cute and fun!

How cute! What a fun idea for this topic.

It never would have occurred to me to make an amusing tale out of the "eternity" theme, but I'm certainly glad it occurred to you. Very well done!
