Stage: Simple. A chair for each character. This could also be done on a video screen, with a split screen at times.
Costumes: Everyday clothes
Notes: The two characters can overlap with the end of one line and beginning of the next or they can repeat the words just said by the prior character. There can even be a combination of the two. Give the characters some freedom and let the lines flow from one to another.
Sarah: I still can't believe he's gone.
Sarah and Joel: We've known each other since we were just kids.
Joel: He was always so...
Sarah:...so sweet. And...
Joel: ..and kind.
Sarah: He'd talk to anyone even...
Joel: ...even the outcasts.
Sarah and Joel: I was one of them.
Sarah: He always took the time to ask how I was doing.
Joel: He'd even go out of his way to make sure I was okay.
Sarah: He knew when I was feeling down. And he always had..
Joel: ...just the right words.
Sarah: It was almost like...
Joel: ...like he could see my feelings on the inside.
Sarah:...even when I was careful not to let anyone else see.
Joel: He was always so fair. Fair and...
Sarah: Fair and just. At school, the teachers would also go to him for the real story.
Joel: They knew he wouldn't put some spin on it for his own gain.
Sarah: And he was so...
Sarah: I remember one time when I couldn't understand the lesson. The teacher had explained it to me....
Joel: ...it seemed like hundreds of times. But I just couldn't catch on.
Sarah: He sat with me for hours until I got it.
Joel: It finally just clicked. He explained it so differently from the teacher, and when he explained it, it made sense.
Sarah: I thanked him over and over again.
Joel: He just smiled.
Sarah: But then as we got older, he...
Joel: ...he changed. Not in a bad way, really. He was just...
Joel: ...almost odd. He started saying things that were...
Sarah: ...irrational. They just didn't make any sense.
Joel: And some of his claims were...
Sarah: ...well, downright preposterous.
Joel: I began to wonder...
Sarah: ...what happened to that little boy I grew up with?
Joel: He got all the local officials mad.
Sarah: They claim he did all sorts of horrible things.
Joel: One side says he's guilty...
Sarah: ...the other says he's innocent, and that the prosecution brought forth false witnesses.
Joel: I'm not even sure what to think anymore. But I never thought...
Sarah: I never thought it would come to this.
Joel: He was executed.
Sarah: His name?
Joel: I guess I never mentioned his name, did I? It was...
Sarah and Joel: ...Jesus.
Sarah: What's that? Jesus is...
Sarah and Joel: ...alive?
Joel: But... how can that be?
Sarah: I guess he really was...
Joel: ...no, is
Sara and Joel: Messiah!
