Needed: 5 Males – 3 Females:

Brother Martin – his second in command, age mid 30s to 50. A “Go-Getter” with ambitions.
Brother Olf – a novice, age late 20s to early 30s – Big & a bit childlike.
Brother Felix – another novice of similar age – a romantic with a few bars of singing.
A Peasant Woman – from the village, age 40+ - Mother to Marie.
Jack – a one eyed minstrel, age mid 20s to mid 30s – sings, dances, juggles – basic string instrument skills a plus.
Marie – his wife… of sorts, age mid to late 20s – sings, dances – petite. Must be carried about like a rag doll. A LOT.
Agatha – the Abbess of Bernay. Charles’ sister. age 50+ A formidable woman. Strong & competitive.
Although the play takes place about 1250 A.D. in a French monastery, the language is contemporary without accents.
The story: The Brothers of Saint Foy is a dwindling order. They work hard to care for their parish village but the relics (bones) of their patron saint have not worked a miracle in thirteen years. Their only income is from a “Pay to Pray” policy and no one in their village can afford to pay the penny! When the convent in a neighboring town claims to have acquired the relics of “The Real St. Foy” the pilgrims flock to pray for miracles and the battle begins! Toss in a one eyed Jester/con man, his seductive dancer “wife” and the promise of a visit from the Pope and… – Well, all SOMETHING breaks loose! This is a dark comedy that playfully examines how, both then and now, we often feel compelled to do the wrong thing for all the right reasons – and our only saving grace is… Grace itself. A farcical & physical romp.
