— One Act Plays —

The Ancient Greeks placed coins on the eyes of their dead, so that they could pay Charon, the boatman of Hades, to ferry them across the River Styx.

Charon: Greetings, departed soul. I am here to ferry you across these blackened waters.

Departed Soul: Thank you, Charon. Please, accept these coins as payment for your trouble.

Charon: Two cents? You want me to paddle you across the River Styx for two cents?

Departed Soul: I’m sorry, it’s all the cash I’ve got on me. 

Charon: It’s like a 600 mile trip. Against the current.

Departed Soul: I understand if you don’t want to take me.

Charon: No, I mean, I’m going to take you. I need the money. You realize it’s like a four-month trip, right?

Departed Soul: Wow, four months?

Charon: Sometimes it takes five or six. It depends on how many monsters I have to fight.

Departed Soul: I’m sorry I don’t have more coins.

Charon: This keeps happening. 


Six months later


Mrs. Charon: Hi honey. How was work?

Charon: Not great. 

Mrs. Charon: Bobby needs money for his scout uniform.

Charon: When did he join the scouts? 

Mrs. Charon: Last month, when you were away paddling. The uniform’s eighty-five dollars.

Charon: Eighty-five dollars for a uniform? What’s it made of, silk? 

Mrs. Charon: If you want, I could ask my mother to pay for it.

Charon: Don’t you dare ask your mother.
