The Confessional


Comedy, Church, Two Pages

A contrite but somewhat reserved woman finds that her priest has an unexpected new way of extracting her confession.

This comedy had a table read at a writer's class recently and had the room in stitches. It's a very clever script that forces the woman to really act the pants off it and the priest to be so aloof that it adds to the ramping up of the tension that elicits the confession to come out in full.

The reveal is exquisite and unexpected.
