Synarchy The Audio Drama

CASTING CALL PAGE AND SHOW INFORMATION. VOICE ACTORS PLEASE READ THE BELOW THOROUGHLY. AUDITIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE LISTENED TOO. 

Saving the world wasn’t as important as beating Them.

A mobsters vs aliens scifi conspiracy thriller

Show Information

Synarchy is a science fiction conspiracy thriller that tells the story of a problematic mafia family, that has decided to take on the secret societies and alien masters controlling the world. Not all family members agree with this choice, so there is backstabbing and intrigue. Reviewers have called Synarchy the Godfather Meets Stargate. The Terenzio’s are problematic in the way the Punisher or Dexter is problematic. The story itself deals with themes such as:

  • Secret Societies
  • Conspiracy Theories (not that qanon bullshit)
  • Mind control
  • Harsh critiques of all political ideologies and organized religion 
  • Ancient Aliens
  • Conscious Evolution and Spirituality
  • Toxic relationships in family and romantic partnerships
  • Tons of family drama
  • The power of love
  • The power of people

Any questions please email theteam@talesoftheforgotten.com

First Round of Casting - CLOSED - DECISION MAKING IN PROGRESS

Menes – This character will only be in Episode One, but I need an extraordinary VA to give them a voice because they must make a lasting impact. Menes is kind. Menes is a visionary, and completely connected to Source (God). A more balanced individual has probably not existed. They are from the Planet Atlantis that has been destroyed and they are here on Earth to deliver a very, very important message to a team of scientists. 

Open to all

Dr. D. Vaughn – has a lot of degrees and is extremely smart. This is a person of science who has the impossible task of making sense out of a lot of woowoo shit. Also has a crush on one of their colleagues. It’s super cute.


Long-term commitment required.
