Mass Appeal
Father Tim Farley is comfortably ensconced as priest of a prosperous Catholic congregation. His well-ordered world is disrupted by the arrival of Mark Dolson, an intense and idealistic young seminarian whom Father Farley reluctantly agrees to take under his wing. There is immediate conflict between the two, as the older man is reminded of the firebrand he once was, and the younger comes to realize that tolerance is as vital to the Christian ethic as righteousness 
 
FATHER TIM FARLEY (Male: 40s-60s) – a priest of a prosperous Catholic congregation, highly popular with his parishioners due to his charm, wit, easy-going manner, and entertaining (but unchallenging) sermons.  A bit too fond of wine.  Likes being liked. Drives a Mercedes. Intelligent.  Comfortable with and protective of his life and his relationship to his congregation.  Knows how the hierarchy and politics of the Church work and has lived accordingly.  

MARK DOLSON (Male: late 20s-30s) – an intense and idealistic young seminarian. Athletic (runs eight miles a day).  Sometimes painfully direct with a low tolerance for what he sees as the out-of-date and out-of-touch behavior of the Church.  Sincere and well intentioned in his desire for change. Intelligent and compassionate, but can appear as lacking empathy at times.

Lovers and Executioners
In this comic battle of the sexes, Bernard suspects his wife, Julie, of infidelity. With an over-reaction only possible in the realm of French farce, Bernard deposits Julie on a desert island, expecting never to see her again. She makes her way back and, disguised as a man, wreaks havoc on her husband's new life. Strand's adaptation of Montfleury's 17th-century poetry into 20th-century verse is like the best farce, wild yet precise.
 
BERNARD (Male: 40-50) - a wealthy bourgeois

JULIE (Female: 30s) - Bernard's wife, but also appears disguised as FREDERIC. Must have stage combat or extensive physical training.

CONSTANCE (Female: 20s) - pursued by Bernard

DON LOPE (Male: 30s-40s) - Spanish captain, in love with Constance

GUZMAN (Male: 30s-40s) - valet to Bernard

OCTAVIUS (Male: 30s-40s) - valet to Julie. Must have stage combat or extensive physical training.

BEATRICE (Female: 30s-40s) - servant/companion to Constance
