RICK BALDWIN – Early 20s, Japanese-American. A smart, optimist, fun-loving Staten Island stud who's studying sports medicine at a local NY college. Rick's the kind of guy who paints his face green, drinks a lot and hangs with his buds on St. Patrick's Day.
JOSEPH FLAHERTY – 40s, White. On the short side, stout and balding. Born in Savannah, Georgia, he's now an angry, liberal contracts lawyer who lives on the "way Upper West Side." His wife recently walked out, leaving him with two young daughters.
STEPHEN FITZGERALD – Late 30s, African-American. Tall, handsome gay cop from the Bronx. He's a moody, dark, taciturn smart-ass. Lives with his father, who's also a cop. Stephen never ever ever sees the glass as half full, although he would probably like to.
KEVIN SHAUNESSY – Late 40s to early 50s, White. A Catholic priest, originally from Boston. He's the principal of a parochial school in Brooklyn Heights which donates rooms to various support groups. A sweet, caring guy with acting aspirations. Actually looks like he could play a priest on TV.
KEIRAN RILEY – Late 20s, White. Nice-looking, middle class guy from Queens who works at a roofing company. Keiran is exuberant, very nervous and very sincere. He's also really Irish and someone you'd want to be your best friend.
It is important Stephen be in his late 30s, very good-looking and tall. Joseph needs to be short in stature, balding, and chubby, if possible. Rick should be 22 at the very most; he must look as if he runs and plays many sports. Fr. Kevin has to look as if he could play a priest on television: witty, trustworthy, decent, maybe even with steel gray hair. Kieran should be nice-looking, good-humored and sincere. The play really works when they all look different and are different shapes and sizes.
