It’s Christmas Eve in a little hotel coffee shop in Palestine, Texas.
A colorful cast of characters have gathered together and on that one special night, they’re joined by Alber Barlet, a widower who has returned to relive a half-century love affair with his late wife, Rhonda.
O Little Town of Bagels, Teacakes and Hamburger Buns is a heartwarming production filled with humor, surprising intrigue and tender romance. This thoughtful comedy — part love story, part re-affirmation of Christmas — explores faith and the many personal responses it inspires.
Get in the spirit with this poignant story penned by Jeannette Clift George, the founder of A.D. Players and The George Theater in Houston.
Male, a former archangel now an investigator.
Archie is a hard boiled detective much like Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe. As an archangel, he was the angel of death, the one responsible for taking the lives of the Egyptian firstborn. If he had his way, he would've wiped out even more of the enemies of God's people. He has little compassion and a sense of justice that borders on self-righteousness. He walked away from being an archangel for a time, but after he found the 6th trumpet, Archie's back in good graces with the powers that be -- much to his displeasure.
Male, Leviathan's (Satan's) new right hand.
He did time in the pit -- hard time. Now he's out and wanting vengeance against the one who put him there, Archie. This guy is psychotic, sadistic and particularly heinous. The powers that be would love nothing more than to ice him, except that Apollyon has them over a barrel. The minute he dies, the pit will be opened and Armageddon unleashed.
Male, an archangel and protector of mankind.
He is like a cop. Strong-minded, straightforward but also fair and thoughtful. Michael and Archie have had a strained relationship in the past. They used to be partners, but when Archie walked away, he left Michael alone to protect Israel during the destruction of the Temple. Michael has since softened up on his prior friend. But only to a point.
Female, the archangel over God's justice.
Like Archie, she doesn't have much use for things like compassion or forgiveness. When you make her mad, you don't live long. She is a pro at carrying out her duties. She can kill with the bat of an eye, or make you stew in your sin until you're nothing but hollow shell. She's cunning, skillful -- a real artist. Her only weakness is her little sister Uriel, whom she guards relentlessly.
Female, the head archangel and messenger of God.
Gabriel was the first angel created by God. God, in His infinite sense of humor, created Gabriel in the form of a little girl, something that drives Gabriel crazy. But the reason it was done, was so Gabriel would maintain humility. Gabriel directs the other angels in their basic duties, especially with regard to major events. She is like the angel chief of police or commissioner.
Female, is Archie's secretary.
She's a bit ditzy, but she can be tough as nails when she wants to be. She backs Archie without question.
She is a new guardian angel watching over a precocious 6 year old which has her rethinking her whole desire to be a guardian angel.
Male/Female, is the boss demon (Satan).
He/She is bigger than life and the only one who can keep Appolyon in line. Leviathan is completely corrupt and seeks to corrupt others as well, be they human or angel. Leviathan knows his days are numbered which makes him all the more dangerous. His only desire is to wreak vengeance upon God for removing him from heaven and the only way he can do this is by corrupting as much of mankind as possible.
Female, the archangel in charge of holding the fiery sword to block the entrance into the Garden of Eden. Uriel was the guardian angel over Eve, but when mankind was expelled from the Garden, the Old Man charged Uriel with the duties of keeping mankind from reentering it. Since then, the serpent from the garden turned his attention to her and has tormented her on a continual basis. Because of this, Uriel is not psychologically sound and relies on her big sister Raphael to take care of her.
Female, is the maitre'd for the White Halo. Archie's good friend and source of information. Archie relies on Frenchy to watch his back in tight situations.
Male, an older man.
Seeming to be simple, homespun, says what he thinks. He's the maintenance man in charge of maintaining the warehouse, where much of the city's supplies are stored.
SAMMY & PERRY
Male/Female, one big and one small.
Leviathan's muscle. Leviathan currently has them stalking Archie in order to uncover the Bowls of God's Wrath. They're tough, but not smart.
