Lot

I am Abraham’s nephew Lot. Two strangers have come to Sodom; they seem to be godly men, so I beg them to spend the night in my house. Could they be angels?

Prompter & Echoes

Angels!

Lot

That night a terrible thing happens. Men, crazed by perverted lust, come and make wicked demands.

Villain

Lot! Lot, my friend! Send your guests out for us to have some pleasantries.

Lot

Please, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

Prompter & Echoes

Go away!

Lot

In a panic, I foolishly tell those wicked men, “I have two daughters who have not had relations with man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them whatever you like; but don’t harm these men, since they’ve come under the shelter of my roof.”

Angel

Lot, you are pathetic!

Villain

Hey! Lot, you are a foreigner. You have no right to tell us what to do. Come, guys, let’s force our way through the doorway.

Lot

No! Stay out! Please!

Prompter & Echoes

Stay out!

Lot

They are forcing their way in! I cannot hold them away! The angels reach out and pull me into the house. They shut the door and strike those evil men with blindness, but the men are crazed by lust and grow weary trying to find the door.

Angel

Lot, take your wife, your daughters and sons-in-law out of this city! Now! We are about to destroy it. Its evil has become very great before the Lord; He sent us to destroy it. Go now and speak to your future sons-in-law.

Lot

(Go to one side and shout) My sons-in-law, get up! We must flee. God will soon destroy this city!

Villain

Ha! The poor stooge! Lot is jesting!

Lot

Morning dawns, and the angels shake me.

Prompter & Echoes

Wake up!

Angel

Get up, Lot! Take your wife and daughters, or disaster will sweep you away.

Prompter & Echoes

Quickly!

Lot

I hesitate, but the angels seize us, and take my family outside the city.

Angel

(Pull Lot to one side; talk firmly) Escape for your life with your family! Do not look back! Do not stay in the valley. Flee to the mountains, or disaster will sweep you away.

Lot

Oh no, my lords! Not the mountains! Disaster would overtake me there; I would die. Look, there is a town over there we can flee to, and it is small. Please, let me escape there, since it is small!

Angel

Very well. We will not destroy that tiny town, but do not delay!

Prompter & Echoes

Hurry!

Lot

The sun rises as we enter the town of Zoar. Then I hear a terrible roar. I see the reflection of great fire all around, but I dare not look back.

Villain

Oh, no! Fire is falling on us! Help!

Prompter & Echoes

Fire! Fire!

Lot

Wife! Daughters! Do not look back, or you will die! The angel warned us!

Prompter & Echoes

Do not look back!

Lot

The Lord rains brimstone and fire down from heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah. He destroys those cities. Then, Alas! My wife looks back! Oh, no! She has become a statue!

Prompter & Echoes

A pillar of salt!

[PEXCERPT] The wrath of God is an unpopular but crucial reality; depraved people bring God’s fearful punishment on themselves. Find how God takes Lot and his family out of the wicked and doomed city Sodom just in time. [/PEXCERPT]
