Synopsis: 
An interlaced tale of time about a family of musicians who fall apart but are forever connected through the ageless sound of music. PAGANONO (39), a deaf schizophrenic makes his way back home to visit his dying father, PLUTUS (66), who he hasn’t seen for over 30 years. As a PRIEST gives PLUTUS last rights, PAGANONO marches closer and closer with every break of the prayer until he reaches the estranged but familiar environment, causing his past memories to become alive, forcing him to relive the memories of his past. He sees his younger self and his family as they once were, young struggling artists; His father, a retired violinist who was forced to turn to violin making and repairing instead of playing, and his mother AURRAS, a former classical pianist who also had to abandon her career due to complications involving a brain tumor. As PAGANONO forges through his trauma, interacting with his past self, he finally reaches his father’s death bed, wielding nothing but the sound of a violin as the OLD MAN dies in peace.

Audition Date(s): 
February 28 - March 6th
Character 1 Name: 
Paganono
Character 1 Age: 
30-40
Character 1 Description: 
A deaf schizophrenic, traumatized by a difficult childhood, longing to reconnect with his father before it’s too late. When he was a boy he regarded the violin as the only possible vehicle to a genuine connection with his father, but his father forbade him from playing the violin, causing him to run away from home after a violent exchange which culminated after his mother’s death. Now, after 30 years, coming to the realization that his father’s actions were borne by love, he returns home on the cusp of his fathers’ death, and communicates all the pent up emotion he’s kept sealed for three decades through the sound of a violin, which he’s now mastered. (Preferably the actor can play the violin or the piano, but it is not necessary).
Character 2 Age: 
12-14
Character 2 Name: 
Boy
Character 2 Description: 
The character of the Boy is Paganono when he was younger. An adventurous spirit, the boy was born deaf, so his only means of communication with his family is sign language which his mother taught him at a young age. However, his father doesn’t know sign language, thus the only way the boy can communicate with him is by feeling the vibrations of the violin when his father plays, a feeling the boy yearns to replicate in his father. After the death of his mother, he gravitates even more to the violin like a lost limb, wanting to express his grief, but his father denies him that relief out of fear of the unsympathetic pursuit of art, causing the boy to run away from home.
Character 3 Name: 
Aurras
Character 3 Age: 
20-30
Character 3 Description: 
The boy’s mother and Plutu’s wife. She had a fairy successful but relatively short career as a classical pianist that was cut short when she began to develop a brain tumor causing severe symptoms such as epilepsy, rendering her unable to perform and remember her technique. She has turned to religion for stability and meaning after her hardship, and casts these religious practices over her family in order to alleviate their pain. She keeps on trying to play the piano through her illness, dreaming that one day she will be able to play again but this proves unsuccessful when her symptoms worsen, and is in turn left with no reason to live. (Preferably the actor can play the piano).
Character 4 Name: 
Plutus
Character 4 Age: 
30-40
Character 4 Description: 
The boy’s father and Aurra’s husband. A retired violinist who was forced to become a violin maker and a luthier after complications due to an arm surgery. This professional change kills something in PLUTUS, who was on the verge of realizing his fervent dream to become an established violin virtuoso with a long and lustrous career. He becomes resentful towards his innate passion for music and now deems the pursuit of art as sinful, selfish and dangerous, a short-lived unrealistic dream. This feeling is further strengthened by his wife’s illness and by his son’s seemingly invincible interest in playing the violin. Plutu’s, like his wife, also turns to religion for answers, but when Aurras dies he struggles with his faith, haunted by her ghost, and takes his grief and emotional instability out on his son. (Preferably the actor can play the violin).
Character 5 Name: 
Old Man
Character 5 Age: 
60-80
Character 5 Description: 
The character of the Old Man is Plutus as an old man. He has lost all faith, and sits every day in front of his house, waiting for his son to return. Now as he lays on his death bed as a PRIEST performs last rights, he grunts in protest because he wants to repent, but not in any religious sense, he wants to talk to his son, and express his regret as well as his love for him. As death engulfs him, he attempts a last-ditch effort to stay alive, grasping at life in order to wait a little longer, hoping his son will open his bedroom door at any moment.
Additional Characters: 

Priest
God’s representative (60) Resigned to fulfil his duty about forgiving sinners as they embark on their journey toward God's judgment. A character outside the tragedies that took place in the house, but for him it is clear that Plutus is not someone worthy of God's forgiveness
