Zastrozzi

Odd play for a Canadian author (George F. Walker) to write, but very interesting all the same. It is a modern revenge tragedy, with everyone appropriately dead at the end.

Rick Roberts was excellent in the title role, as was Andrew Shaver as the protagonist, Verezzi.
It was nice to see Sarah Orenstein again as Matilda – she had just the right style and attitude! Even if her dress was a bit sluttish (joke).

John Vickery was great as Victor and I look forward to seeing him again.

    A fun take on a revenge tragedy (comedy?), but I don't know why Stratford put it on. If they had a season with traditional revenge tragedies, including Zastrozzi would have been more amusing. Well acted and good set/lighting and direction, though.
