Screen Story #27: "My Mom the Witch"

In today's short screenplay, a young girl introduces her playmate to her strange family.

My Mom the Witch (pdf file, 15 pages)
Samantha tiptoes into the living room, followed by Lindy and Henry. There they see HUNDREDS of lit candles arranged randomly around the room. As in the kitchen, the blinds are drawn tightly shut, so the candles provide the only light.

In the center of the room is some kind of makeshift pagan altar. There are all sorts of strange icons and symbols arranged on and around it. The purpose of this display isn’t clear, but we can almost imagine sacrifices of some kind taking place here. It is a scary scene to us, but the girls seem to take it in stride.


Your mom must REALLY like candles.
