CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

ABIGAIL GERSTEN: 40s.  A lawyer, Jewish but not practicing,  she believes deeply in the First Amendment and will serve the law through Cooper.  She finally has to decide what is legal and what is moral.

STEFANIE:  20s.  Written as African-American or person of color.  A legal secretary.  May be the smartest person in the play.  Not swayed by opinions of what is right or wrong.  Watches what happens then forms her opinion.  Loves Abby and wants to protect her.

BERNARD COOPER: 40 TO 50.   An academic wasp.  Always completely sincere.   He really believes what he says. Hides his nature behind a veneer of civility.  Audience must not hate him personally just his ideas.

ADAM RYBERG: 20s.  Jewish and observant.  A prosecutor who has good personal reasons to belies as he does.

NOAH GOMROWITZ:   80s.  An eminence.  ThinkElie Wiesel.  A slight accent but understandable.  He is the conscience of the world.  He has told his story so often and so well that he believes it to be true.

NATHAN: 80s.  A concentration camp survivor.   He speaks the truth. A slight accent (do not hoke or “catskill” him).  He must be sympathetic not a laughing stock.
