The characters in No Stranger aren't people at all. They are, rather, a social worker's idea of people. They are exemplars of the case approach to drama, the Dick and Jane and little Billy of elementary textbooks. It follows, then, that No Stranger is not really a play but a lesson. And we are entitled to ask what on earth it is doing in the middle of the Philadelphia Festival Theater for New Plays season at the Annenberg Center's Harold Prince Theater, where it premiered last night as a co-production with the center.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, "Wally," and I have been friends for several years, and a couple for nearly two. He recently brought up the subject of marriage, and we agreed that we are likely altar-bound. Only one thing gives me pause. A few months ago, Wally got plastered and had a fling with a female friend. He regretted it immediately and said it was what made him realize I am "The One. " (He is getting help for his drinking now.) The problem is, the woman is still pursuing him. She buys him gifts or brings him vegan meals.

The second and concluding co-production of the season for the Philadelphia Festival Theatre for New Plays and the Annenberg Center, "No Stranger," is not so much a play as a daily daytime television serial looking for a sponsor. It asks one burning question after another. Will Faye and her beloved Mark find happiness as the adoptive parents of Wally the orphan? Will Faye stop withholding sex from Mark because he is spending so much time with Wally, thereby driving Mark into the arms of Kathy, her best friend and college roommate, who has always had a crush on Mark and who in fact was his first conquest as a young stud?

Gee, Beav, we always thought your adventures with Wally and Eddie Haskell were amusing. But educational? Golly, we never thought of it that way. WGNO, a TV station in New Orleans, has. Its description of a re-run of "Leave It to Beaver": "Eddie misunderstands Wally's help to his girlfriend Cindy, and confronts Wally with his fist . . . Communication and trust are shown in this episode. " These written gymnastics were enough to meet the requirements of a law - five years and a presidential veto in the making - supposed to require a few minutes of "educational programming" amid the animated violence and full- length toy commercials.

Nathaneal Osbourne did not mind sharing his apartment for a night or two with John Allen Muhammad and his traveling partner, John Lee Malvo. He was unsure where they were coming from or where they were headed, but Osbourne wanted to help Muhammad, who had helped his brother emigrate from Jamaica two years earlier. A place to sleep for a short time was little to ask in return. Osbourne's hospitality in September would soon link him to one of the biggest manhunts in the nation's history, a search that ended when his guests were charged with 10 sniper-style murders in the days after they left his Camden home.

Ray Murray, who told Channel 3 executives three years ago that he didn't want to host Evening Magazine anymore, has signed on for another three years. A ballpark figure: $125,000 per. "The terms of the contract are the same as always," said smiley-faced Murray, 31, who co-hosts the popular pre-prime-time show with Nancy Glass, his partner in chuckles. Other than the bucks, he said, the essential contract term that concerned him was that he be allowed to continue producing Evening Out, the two-month- old show that showcases local talent.

Montgomery Theater, like many area houses, just opened its winter musical, I Love My Wife. Like most of the others, this show deals with a very special Christmas Eve, when gifts are offered and dreams come true. Unlike the others, those gifts and dreams mostly involve getting undressed and swapping spouses. Michael Stewart and Cy Coleman's relic from 1977 carries with it a musty attic air, though any treasure hunter can attest to the joy of finding a vintage gem packed in the cedar chest.

A play is truly successful if it goes beyond entertainment, if its message educates those in the audience about a part of life to which they might otherwise not be exposed, says director Tom Quinn. Simon's Ark by Jonathan Daly, which opens tonight at the Montgomery Theater Project, is such a play, Quinn says. Though essentially a comedy, it is also a grisly tale about the lives of an unlikely ensemble of homeless people bound together in the squalor of a skid row. Simon was once a handsome actor, his bright star rising.

Wally Joyner studied the images in front of him and shook his head. First, he saw Domonic Brown frozen in time with a first-pitch fastball hurtling toward him. Brown was bent at the knees, his hands adjacent to his mouth, his torso slightly hunched. Next, Joyner saw himself from 13 years earlier in almost exactly the same pose. "That's surprising," Joyner said. "I'm not going to say it's not similar, because it's very similar. I'm imagining there are other guys you could slide in there who look the same.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - As an Angels rookie in 1986, Wally Joyner became a national sensation. The hype, the unrelenting attention, even garnered a moniker. The Angels weren't coming to your town for a three-game series. "Wally World" was. With an unusual baseball name and an everyman frame that one of his BYU coaches described as "a bowling pin in knickers," Joyner was an easy feel-good story to get behind. After finishing each of his two full minor league seasons with 12 home runs, that first season he hit 15 by mid-May and outpolled perennial Yankees All-Star Don Mattingly to start the All-Star Game in July.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Wally Joyner stuck out his left fist for a bump Wednesday as Domonic Brown dashed past the batting cage. When Brown poked one the opposite way a few minutes later, Joyner nodded his head and said, "Atta boy. " In between batting-practice rounds, Joyner mimicked a swing to make a point while Brown watched. A day earlier, Brown credited his hot spring start to Joyner, the Phillies' new assistant hitting coach. "It seemed like God maybe sent an angel down toward me," Brown said, citing the strong connection the two made.

During a coaching overhaul immediately following a disappointing 2012 season, the Phillies decided they wanted to have two hitting coaches to offer their lineup differing methods of instruction. On Monday, they hired Wally Joyner, a 16-year major-league veteran, to serve as assistant hitting coach. Joyner, 50, will work with newly appointed hitting coach Steve Henderson. A condition of Henderson's hiring was his acceptance of an assistant. It's the newest trend in baseball. Three teams - St. Louis, Atlanta and San Diego - employed assistants in 2012.

YOU'VE SEEN Wally Neibart's art. You just don't realize it. Over a span of some 60 years, his illustrations appeared in numerous magazines, from Playboy and Philadelphia magazine, to the National Wild Turkey Federation publication, in local newspapers, including the Daily News, in books, in countless advertisements, on billboards, and, if you happened to be at the Shore at certain times, on your raft. Some of the drawings that he did for fun couldn't be reprinted in a family newspaper.

The Cleveland Cavaliers gave LeBron James the help he wants - maybe enough to compete for the ring he craves. The Cavaliers took part in the biggest trade of deadline day, landing center Ben Wallace and swingman Wally Szczerbiak yesterday in a three-team deal with Chicago and Seattle. Wallace provides the Cavs with rebounding, shot blocking and plenty of playoff experience. Szczerbiak's outside shooting could make teams pay for double-teaming James, the NBA's leading scorer who hoped his team could pull off a move.
