Synopsis: Zastrozzi is a man at the height of his power. Physically, spiritually, intellectually, he is the master criminal of all Europe and he stands poised to bring society to its knees before him. Yet rumours circulate that Zastrozzi has been neutralized, that the world is safe from Zastrozzi because he has become consumed by a singular, more personal ambition: Revenge. How far will one man go and how much carnage will he rain upon his own works to finally achieve his revenge? George F. Walker’s sweeping epic brings us to a time and a place unlike any you’ll see on stage this year.

Roles Available:

  • BERNARDO, A brutish man and Zastrozzi’s disciple. He is accustomed to taking what he wants, and foolishly believes he will eventually be Zastrozzi’s equal.
  • VEREZZI, an Italian, an artist, a dreamer. A tragic incident in his past has left him bereft of his senses.
  • VICTOR, his tutor. A wise man that attempts to keep Verezzi one step ahead of Zastrozzi.
  • MATILDA, a gypsy, a raven-haired beauty. A sultry woman that excels in seduction, bu is just as quick with a dagger. She aspires to be Zastrozzi’s equal and lover.
  • JULIA, an aristocrat, a fair-haired beauty. She is an innocent, trapped in a situation she has no control over.

Please prepare one dark comedic monologue of no more than five (5) minutes in length.Those actors seen at call backs will be provided sides for cold reading.
