The Revenger’s Tragedy
Location: Providence, RI
Audition for Head Trick Theatre’s summer production: THE REVENGER’S TRAGEDY!
“The Revenger’s Tragedy” is a blackly funny drama of violence and lust in a corrupt court, written by Shakespeare’s contemporary Thomas Middleton. Vindice seeks bloody revenge for the lives of his fiancée and his father — can he kill his enemies without becoming as corrupt as they are? Will any of that even matter if one of the half-dozen other jerks jockeying for power gets there first?
Sunday, May 22, 12:00-3:00pm
Monday, May 23, 7:00-10:00pm
@ Mathewson Street Theater at 134 Mathewson Street (4th floor of Mathewson St. Church)
Please prepare a monologue by Middleton, Shakespeare or another early modern dramatist, and bring a photo/headshot. You may also bring a resume. After reciting your monologue, you may be asked to read from the script.
