See below for character descriptions.
Joe Benjamin (Male: 52) Well to do Long Island businessman patiently dealing with difficulties posed by family and associates, but is challenged by Sidney’s arrival. He tries to deal with the challenges put before him as best he can by keeping his faith.
Ben Benjamin (Male: 22) Joe’s spoiled and ungrateful son, Sarah’s twin-brother, not too bright. Possesses a tremendous capacity to state the obvious.
Sarah Benjamin (Female: 22) Joe’s attractive and spoiled daughter and Ben’s twin-sister, like Ben in every way, including a lack of smarts, petulant and bad at keeping her robe closed.
Rose Benjamin (Female: 48) Joe’s wife, demanding and a bit entitled. Unsure how to deal with the calamity that threatens their comfortable lifestyle and less than a rock for Joe to lean on.
Sidney Lipton (Male: 40s) Actually a messenger from God, on a mission to test Joe and report back to “the Boss.” A neurotic, energetic and somewhat odd compulsive film buff. He has plenty of problems of his own to deal with.
Mady (Female: 40s) A humorously cynical and wisecracking maid. She’s seen it all with this family. But, loyal to the end.
Morris (Male: 40s) Joe’s butler, who is quite jaded and sardonic. He’s obviously been around this family a while. Mady’s partner in crime.
David Benjamin (Male: 30) Older brother to the twins, black sheep of family, prodigal son whose humor is driven by an alcohol problem. Tired of what his father represents, but can’t or won’t do anything about it.
