What Are We Going to Do With All These Rotting Fish?
SAM - Fortyish; less than polished; the best darned fisherman on the lake; as a youth he was a rabbinical student but he finally tired of waiting.
RUNT - Thirtyish; ever loyal; Sam's junior partner; as a child he was much neglected.
ANGELICA - Mid-twentyish; newly married; her one not-so-secret ambition in life is to live as an angel.
LARS - Mid-twentyish; while holidaying in the sunny south, he met and married Angelica; his oft uttered hope in life is that Angelica falls.
CARPE DIEM - "Carp the Shark," as he is known to his friends, is a first-century free enterpriser who unerringly knows both what and whom to do.
What They Didn't Do
PETE - The muscle. The violent one. But his violence is not undiminished by some amount of honest affection for his friends. He has little love for the adult world and little thought for it.
JOHN - A youth with deep feelings for his peers and the adult world. He has the perception and moral capability to see trouble wherever it lies, and yet his very morals cripple him before any action to right the wrong.
JIM - A negro with John's intelligence and Pete's violence but without John's commanding morality. He is more angry than lonely. He is embittered about adults but his effort to change them is little more than an excuse for expressing his bitterness against them. It is but recently that he found anything worthy in the church. And that was through John as his friend. He actually had more faith in John than he had in Christ.
