The Real World - Passover Style

A Passover Haggadah: Scenes from an Egyptian Family:
CHILD 1: Dad, why are Jews slaves?

ADULT 1: Well, son, when our people came here a long time ago, the Pharaoh feared our strength. So he made us into slaves.

CHILD 1: Did we fight?

ADULT 1: No and we should have. We thought that the kind that enslaved us was just a bad man and that once he died, the new king would set us free.

CHILD 1: Bad guess, huh? We've got to do something about it.

ADULT: (Desperately trying to change the subject) Uhh. How was your day at work, dear?

ADULT 1: Awful. They treated me like a slave.

CHILD 1: (Refusing to change the subject) You are a slave, Dad.

ADULT 1: (Gives son a frustrated look and sarcastically says). Thanks. No wonder there's no profit sharing.
How about putting away the old Maxwell House haggadahs this year and acting out 'Scenes from an Egyptian Family'.

John Kador has other Passover Skits and Plays too.
