Play Examines What People Leave Behind After Death


"Show Me the Money" is a stage play about the death and life of Paul Mosley.

Actors from the Potter's House of Prescott will perform "Show Me the Money" at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Rim Country Middle School gym. Admission is free.

"This one is kind of a comedy-drama," said local Potter's House pastor Daniel Green.

The play aims to provoke the audience into thinking about what legacy they will leave behind after their death.

Mosley, the narrator and protagonist of "Show Me the Money," has passed on and his children are dividing up the inheritance.

"Have you ever attended an estate sale and thought, ‘Here is a life of possessions'? (People) line up and down the street to look at those material things," Green said.

Fortunately, the character in "Show Me the Money" is a Christian. So, his true legacy does not lie solely in his worldly possessions, Green said. "(The play) is the tale of how much influence one man's life can have in a small town."

Green has not seen this particular play but said he was impressed by the quality of other plays the Prescott Potter's House had brought to the stage.

"They did a take-off of the movie ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding' called ‘My Big Fat Italian Funeral.' Combined, the actors have over 100 years of experience on stage."

Admission to the one-night-only comedy/drama is free and Potter's House is not looking for donations.

"This will be a great play," Green said. "You don't want to miss it."

Potter's House Church meets at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Sundays in the cafeteria at Julia Randall Elementary School.
