Flight 777, One Layover – Judgment Day!

When my mother phoned me and asked my daughter and me if we would like to attend a gospel stage play with her this past Saturday, I had no idea the good time I was in for. OK, so I did – Admittedly, I am a fan of gospel stage plays. But let’s face it, however, everyone cannot write a good script. Furthermore, it takes all parts of a machine to make it go – so hats off to the actors and actresses as well.

The play, Saints On The Plane written by Tirrell McCoy, is very aptly titled. The premise is based upon individuals, ranging in age from elementary school-age to seniors, who have died unexpectedly and all wake in the boarding area of Flight 777. The layover is where they learn their destiny. Some of the topics delved upon are lust, greed, infidelity and suicide.

The entertaining factors for me were the injections of real-life scenarios with periodic injections of comedy, which by no means took away from the message the playwright attempts to convey. And what would a gospel stage play be without angelic melodies by the actors and actresses. I also enjoyed the praise dancer performances. The play makes one think and ponder the question, “Are you ready?”

What warmed my heart the most though, is Mr. McCoy’s very emotional thanks and praise to God, as well as his invitation to audience members to accept Jesus as their personal savior at the conclusion of the performance. To see so many people moved by this awesome work is very encouraging, especially in the world we live in today.

I recommend this play to people of all ages and from all walks of life. Everyone can relate.
