Breakdown
SEEKING:

PART ONE: KAREL

THE ACTOR: 40+ Relates a friend’s story about an unbearable rash that consumed him. After revealing to a psychiatrist that he had travelled from Eastern Europe t
o England as a young boy in 1939 and was bullied on the train by another boy, the rash went away. He realized the “other boy” on the train never existed but was in fact a creation of his own terror. Or was it?

PART TWO: ELZBIETA ERASED

A: 40+ Relates the tragic story of great Polish actress Elzbieta Czyzewska, who has all but disappeared from history. At times takes on the role of journalist David Halberstram, Elzbieta’s husband, who eventually divorced her afte r 11 years of turbulent marriage. CAST

B: 40+ Polish, black. Partners with A in telling Elzbieta’s story. At times takes on the role of the tempestuous Elzbieta herself, the most famous actress in Poland until she married David Halberstram and moved to America. Also takes on the role of Polish director Andrej Wajda Speaks Polish. CAST

PART THREE: FUNIAGE

GOMBRO- 40+ Caucasian. A slave to his Polish past and culture. A stranger calls to him to break free of that and stay in Argentina when he travels there. A series of bizarre events combined with the words of the stranger inspires him to escape his own artistic and cultural prison and go into a self-imposed exile. CAST

1 and 2- Critics and officials interested only in replicating the work of great Polish artists. They give Gombro the opportunity to travel to Argentina to meet with Polish artists in exile and represent the past, present and future of Polish literature.

CAPTAIN/FATHER- 60’s, Caucasian. Captain of the ship Gombro is on. A great lover of Poland, he names Gombro the deliverer who will lead all back to Poland to defeat Hitler. At times he also appears to Gombro as his judgmental and critical father and represents the writer’s personal and artistic confinement. CAST.

GONZALO 50+ A stranger who beckons Gombro to leave his past and seek out the youth, be the agent of change, and reject his Polish past. He appears out of nowhere at bizarre moments, almost like a spirit, or perhaps a part of Gombro himself. He urges Gombro to break free.

IVONA late 20s. A Princess that Gombro is forced to marry. Based on her pathetic appearance he first believes her to be the scullery maid he slept with when he was 12. She is in fact a princess who will bring Gombro into the highest levels of society. She doesn’t say much but patiently waits to marry her chosen artist.

9 actors total. Ensemble will be as cast.
