The Third Coming
Music by Peter Link
Book and Lyrics by
Peter Link and Ragan Courtney
God takes a look at today’s world
and really does not like what he sees.
So, He decides to send his ol’ trusty Angel, Gabriel, on a mission.
One of His favorite Humans is a young woman, named Thyme (15-20), an Oklahoma Plains waif from Skedee, Oklahoma – pop. 139,
who lives with her Ma and works as a checkout girl at Abigail’s Grocerette in town.
She’s just a simple girl, really, with a big heart and the sweetest of temperaments.
She’s betrothed to Josiah Washburn, in his own words, a “Bi-vocational Fundamentalist minister/carpenter man.”
She likes to say, “I love Josiah Washburn very much. I know I’ll be marrying a good man (after all, he is a minister).
My best friend Lizzy says beware. But I don’t even know what I’m to beware of. Like I said, he is a minister.
What could possibly go wrong?”
She’s a virgin and savin’ it for Josiah.
One day, she is visited by the Angel Gabriel who tells her that she is now pregnant with a new Christ Child.
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, for the next two hours we’re gonna find out.
