Excerpt

gination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, forever.

Enter JOSEPH from rear L.

JOSEPH. For hours I've trudged the street in fruitless quest, Here is an inn, mayhap at last we'll rest.

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J.
