A World Premiere

by Janet Allard & Eleanor Holdridge

directed by Eleanor Holdridge

Zorro, the masked avenger, is born when quiet, bookish Diego must find a way to fight corruption and injustice in this swashbuckling adventure. This World Premiere reframes the pulp drama as a coming of age story about self-discovery and the courage needed to seek justice for all.  It is a world of high romance and daring, where good vanquishes evil, and wrongs are righted with three signature swipes of a sword.     

Run Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, without intermission. 10+

“Zorro is back – dressed all in black, sword at the ready to defend the weak. But there’s a twist. “It’s a Zorro for today,” said Eleanor Holridge. “This is a grown-up, darker version. We wanted this play to be for Zorro what ‘The Dark Knight’ is to Batman.” - DC Theatre Scene
"This mini epic offers big fun on a little stage!" - Washingtonian
