Sinners and Saints by Robert J. Wheeler
“Sinners and Saints” revolves around a traditional family with vastly different attitudes. Nick, a confirmed bachelor, returns to the family home, on leave from the Navy, horrified to find his young and only brother, Andrew, has become a priest. Alice, Nick and Andrew’s mother, is passionate about her need for grandchildren. With Andrew a priest, unable to marry, Nick is her only hope for grandchildren. Desiring bachelorhood, Nick plots with girlfriend Darlene to have Darlene’s friend, Caroline, seduce Andrew from the priesthood to save Andrew from a fate worse than marriage. Caroline considers it her calling to tempt married men from their wives, so considers seducing Andrew to be a unique challenge. Caroline enters as an immature, raw, rude, moral-less, but physically attractive young woman, then, during numerous interactions, including confessions, is transformed into a mature, caring, sensitive Christian. “Sinners and Saints” lives in the realm as “My Fare Lady” and “Pretty Woman”. Sometimes, after everything goes wrong, they go right. At the conclusion the audience is treated to an surprising twist and a joyful ending.
