Dramatic Environmental Scene for Two Actors (male or female) "Replenish the Earth"

Here is a scene for two actors (male or female) adapted from the play "Replenish the Earth" http://freedrama.net/replenish.html
Please contact doug@freedrama.net for permission to use the scene.

GRANDPARENT
(Weak)
And God created the great whales, and every living creature that lived within the sea. God created the mighty winged birds that soared through the skies. Then, God made the beasts that roamed the earth; all living in unison, each an important part of the harmony composed by our Lord.(Lights come up, DL, on CHILD)

CHILD
(Powerful)
And God created man and woman to rule over the creatures within the sea, the birds in the sky, and the beasts that roamed the earth. God blessed them and said, 'be fruitful and multiply. Replenish the earth, and subdue it'.

GRANDPARENT
(Weak)
...Replenish the earth...

(Pause)
May humans forever remain 'noble savages', living in harmony with nature.

CHILD
(In awe)
The noble humans in all their glory building great towers above the earth. Such infinite power at their command. Nothing can stop them. Nothing will ever stand in their way.

GRANDPARENT
(Sadly)
Nothing can stop them. Nothing will ever stand in their way.

MICHELE
...And God said 'have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, and every living thing upon the earth'.

GRANDPA
...Replenish the earth...

CHILD
...And subdue it...
 
...And God said 'Behold, I have given you every seed-bearing herb and every tree that yields fruit upon the earth'.

GRANDPARENT
May we take only that which we need and return all that we have taken.

CHILD
The world is ours.

GRANDPARENT
In careless hands, it may fall and shatter, lost to us all, never to be seen in all its glory again.

CHILD
We are the rulers upon the earth. Commanders of the sea, Monarchs of the sky.

GRANDPARENT
In every beast of the earth,
In every bird of the sky,
In every living creature upon the earth, there is life.
Please, protect our fragile earth.

END OF SELECTION
