The play initiates in the heart of New York, the city that never sleeps. You have your gamblers, newsstand, hasty townspeople, and missionary workers all trying to claim the rapid city of New York. It begins with the missionary trying to witness to everyone but the attempt gradually fails as Sarah Brown spreads the Word. The major characters in this play all seem to bump heads with each other through different occasions.
Major Characters List:
These four characters encounter each other in separate circumstances. Nathan, a crap game dealer, has been engaged to Adelaide for fourteen years. Nathan throughout the play is trying to find a location for his dice rolling game. Adelaide is a glamorous showgirl who is in love with Nathan but hates what he does. She is eager to marry Nathan but focuses immensely on changing him. Nathan, keen to find a location, makes a bet with Sky Masterson, a very high roller, that he can not pull any girl he’d like. Sky takes Nathan up on that bet but soon realizes that he has been conned. Nathan gracefully utilizes his charm to convince Sarah Brown to go on a date with him. He tells her he is a reformed sinner and suggests that he can bring a dozen sinners to the missionary if she agrees to go out with him. Sarah accepts not realizing the date is in Havana.
Throughout the play, Adelaide steadily realizes that she can not change Nathan and she still can’t help but to love him anyway. Also, Sarah tries to deny her feelings for Sky but is just to in love with him to forget him. Once Nathan finally finds a place for his crap game, the sewers, Big Jule cons him out of all of his money by utilizing his intimidating appearance and the object that was in his jacket pocket. Sky Masterson appears making a bet that if he wins everyone would have to show up at the missionary. Sky wins and everyone proceeds to the missionary. There, everyone confess of their sins and become revived.
