The Irish Curse (2.0 the Diverse Curse)
by Martin Casella

Rick Baldwin Tanaka (early 20s)
A smart, optimist, fun-loving Staten Island stud who’s studying sports medicine at a local NY college. Rick’s the kind of guy who paints his face green, drinks a lot and hands with his buds on St. Patrick’s Day.
Joseph Flaherty (40s)
On the short side, stout, and balding. Born in Savannah, Georgia, he’s now and angry, liberal contracts lawyer who lies on the “way Upper West Side.” His wife recently walked out, leaving him with two young daughters.
Stephen Fitzgerald (late 30s)
Tall and handsome cop from the Bronx. He’s a moody, dark, taciturn smart-ass. Lives with his father, wo’s also a cop. Stephen never ever ever sees the glass as half full, although he would probably like to.
Kieran Riley (20s)
Nice-looking, middle-class guy from Queens who works at a roofing company. Kieran is exuberant, very nervous and very sincere. He’s also really Irish and someone you’d want to be your best friend.
The role of Father Kevin Shaunessy has already been cast.
