The Lottery is a full performance routine captivating the spirit and essence of Shirley Jackson's famous short story from the nineteen forties. Five lottery contestants are chosen from the audience. After a brief synopsis of the Lottery story a small black bag is introduced. Which contains four shiny white stones and one dark black stone. The bag is shaken up and each contestant reaches their hand inside removing either a white stone or the winning "black rock".
Once everyone has an item in their hands. The performer attempts to divine which one does in fact have the winning lottery ball. Through a humorous series of questions and answers slowly the participants are eliminated until only two are left. One of these two people has the winning lottery stone, which can only mean a sure and certain death by stoning!Of course the winner is appropriately predicted and they are of course left unharmed, but they've learned that some lotteries are not always rewarded with money.. but death!
As a kicker ending, the performer opens a small envelope that has been in view on the table. Inside it reads exactly who the winner of the lottery will be!
