Waiting for Santa ClausA play in one act.
A living room. Night. A Christmas tree. Two small children.
Tina (the older one): Scott.
Scott (the other one): What?
T: Did you ever read the nativity story?
S: (He reflects.) I read the pictures.
T: What's "myrrh"? Everyone says they brought gold, somethingsomething, and "myrrh".
S: (examining his foot) Maybe it's what they make mirrors from.
T: Santa Claus might know.
S: Will he come?
T: We sent word...
T: (getting up) Let's go to bed.
S: We can't.
T: Why not?
S: We're waiting for Santa Claus.
(T sits down.)
S: Let's go.
(They do not move.)
