CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

FATHER FLYNN – Mid to late 30s. A very progressive individual who cares for the well-being of his students and followers. He is also very charismatic and somewhat of a poet at heart.

SISTER ALOYISUSS – 50s to 60s. The principle of the church school. Aloyisus is very old fashioned. Any change to the traditions of the church is an act of sin and diverts from the true principles of the church. She is a very strict women but also cares for the well being of her students. She is suspicious and is not so easily swayed when she has her mind set on something.

SISTER JAMES – early to late 20’s. A nun who recently took her vows. A very kind hearted soul, Sister James is an optimistic person, but is conflicted when it comes deciphering the truth. She is indeed the personification of Doubt. She admires Aloyisus for the respect she commands from her students and wishes to learn from her. She also admires Flynn for his compassion and kind heart towards his congregation.

MRS. MULLER – A black woman who is in her late 30’s. She is the mother of Donald, the first minority student to attend the Catholic school, Mrs. Muller takes great pride in that. She understands sacrifice and will do what she thinks is best for Donald.
