Honor. Betrayal. Foot rubs. Shakespeare and Tarantino collide once again as Commedia Beauregard brings this Elizabethan retelling of Pulp Fiction back to Chicago! Performed in verse. Bard Fiction follows the seedy characters of Tarantino’s opus, now part of London’s underworld, in seemingly disparate plotlines that merge in unexpected ways.

Commedia Beauregard is looking for 5 actors (M & F) of various types to join the cast of Bard Fiction. Men and women of any age (18+), ethnicity and body-type are invited to audition. Women who can play Columbian and men who can play Italian-American encouraged to apply. All actors will play multiple roles.

Rehearsals will begin the first week of June, with a possible read-through the last week of May. Five rehearsals per week. Weekday evenings and weekends. No rehearsals on July 4. Tech rehearsals are July 6-9. Performances will be July 10 – August 2 at City Lit Theater.

Material To Prepare:
