CAST OF CHARACTERS
A young man, about college aged, Jonathan is a secret dreamer with big ideas, although he has never left the town he was born in. He has been dating ELAINE FREEMAN since they were both in junior high school.
A very practical young woman, not real liberated but very much her own person. She knows that she and JONATHAN will get married someday and raise a family in their same little town; that is simply the way of life there.
ELAINE's younger brother is also JONATHAN's best friend. They have known each other since they were very little. FINNY is a bit more light-hearted than JONATHAN, and fond of mischief and adventure.
ELAINE and FINNY's father, a rather coarse, gruff, and opinionated individual. Perhaps living in a house next to a graveyard has soured his disposition.
ELAINE and FINNY's mother tries to be very patient to balance out her husband, although she has a sharpness of her own that emerges on occasion.
JONATHAN's father is an affable, simple man who worked hard and lived decently all his life, and has no regrets.
JONATHAN's mother is a warm, "people" person, very much interested in gossip and matchmaking and the like, and very motherly toward all.
THE PROPHET OF DOOM
A wild-eyed bearded man who dresses in a ragged grey robe and sandals and carries a sign that says "THE END IS NEAR," wandering about town in his own little world.
The Dark Angel is really just a hard-working blue-collar man subject to the whims of the Management, despite his fearsome skeletal appearance.
The Head Angel carries out his duties with a showman's flair that verges on pomposity.
The Prince of Darkness appears as a profit-minded businessman, really more petty than evil, believing he is always cheated by Good.
SATAN's secretary wears high heels and cheap makeup, chews gum, and polishes her nails at the office.
JOAN OF ARC
The martyred warrior maid celebrated in history still carries a shield and has a sword belted to her gown. She realizes now that she missed out on some of the simpler joys of life and is ready to discover them.
