A young woman pulled in two directions – between what she “should” do and what her passions tell her she must do;
  • DIAPHANTA: SUPPORTING ROLE. 20s. A lusty virgin – she is playful and frolicsome – but ultimately innocent ands simply looking forward to experiencing and enjoying sex. A good servant who meets a bad end;
  • DE FLORES: LEADING ROLE. 30s-50. A nobleman fallen on hard times and forced into servitude. He lusts for the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, Beatrice-Joanna, and is drawn to her like a magnet. He is direct, brutish, pragmatic, masculine, and attractive in a rough and tumble way. A little bit like Iago, he is everybody’s most dependable servant for the dirty work;

  • ALONZO: SUPPORTING ROLE. 30s. Romantic young man, totally smitten in love with Beatrice. After being brutally murdered, he haunts the castle as an ever-present bloody ghost. Warm-hearted, youthful and naive, not dumb;
  • ISABELLA : LEADING ROLE. 20s. Strong-willed, attractive, versatile. Good with comedy, can turn on a dime and play tragedy. Teaches the madmen, servants, and fools (her husband included) a lesson. She does it with grace and style and strength, without condescension, and with good humor.
