Innovative St Albans based theatre group Breakaway Theatre Co. present the psychological thriller Roberto Zucco at The Maltings Arts Centre, St Albans.
Bernard-Marie Koltes’ powerful play is based on a true story and follows the sinister adventure of a serial killer; a lost soul driven to commit terrible crimes without motive. Koltes’ inspiration for the play came from seeing a wanted poster in the Paris metro in which four completely different pictures of Zucco were shown. The production also takes inspiration from this, using two actors to play the lead role, expressing not only Zucco’s skill at disguising himself but also to allow the audience to see both his physical, visceral side as well as his battle with his inner demons.
Breakaway Theatre have a reputation for producing unusual and challenging shows, providing both amateur and professional actors the opportunity to work together in a relaxed yet motivated environment to create unique theatre.
This production contains strong language and adult themes and is not recommended for children aged under 18.
