Introducing…the 12 Plays of Christmas. Over the next 12 days, I will write 12 one-act plays that illustrate life in the Nuckols home. Additionally, we will perform these plays for you and put them up on the site.
MIKE, SHANI, ALEX, JACK are eating soup at the dinner table.
(picking up the new holiday pepper shaker)
These things are USELESS.
They are not. I like them.
They don’t give you pepper.
Yes they do.
OK, let’s race. Go.
Jack starts to pepper his soup. Mike gets up, goes to the kitchen, gets a container of pepper, returns and peppers his soup. He does this before Jack is done peppering his own soup.
(she has never looked up from her meal the entire time)
Alex takes Mike’s roll and spikes it in Mike’s soup.
