I have a series of short pieces involving God and the Devil, which always end the same way, with the angelic Almighty getting the better of the harried Prince of Darkness. The Lake Players, at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia, included the 10-minute “God and the Devil Meet for a Business Lunch” as part of their reading series on March 28.

Here are some photos from the evening, or you find the entire set here.

A full house! The show was in the social hall of Resurrection Catholic Church in Moneta, Virginia.

The devil (Blake Lipscomb) shows up at an out-of-the-way diner, hoping to make a business proposition to the Almighty.

Guess what's on the menu. Loaves and fishes.
