Event Type: On Stage, Comedy
Downtown Abbey and The Twilight Saga collides in Charles Ludlam`s side-splitting comedy that explodes onto the stage in July.
Jonathan Roxmouth and Weslee Swain Lauder star in this spoof where all the residents of the Mandacrest estate travel from the moors of England to the tombs of Egypt and back again, encountering along their way a host of vampires, werewolves, mummies and all manner of things that go bump in the night. With Gothic plot turns thrown out like thumbtacks on the road and a stage packed full of outrageous sets and costumes, Irma Vep is a visual feast that will have you in stitches right up until the final twist!
In a remote manor called Mandacrest, something is amiss. Between the horrors of a marauding beast terrorizing the estate and the looming presence of the recently deceased former mistress Irma Vep, Lord Edgar and his new wife, Lady Enid, are having a rough time. Add to that the fact that the maid, Jane, is utterly devoted to the memory of her former mistress and Nicodemus, the groundsman, has a little problem that won`t quite go away, and matters become awkward in the extreme.
Even more bizarre than the cast of characters is the fact that all of these lunatics, beasts, ghouls and gentlefolk are played by only two lightning-witted actors. In fact, the play is often referred to as a quick change act!
The Mystery of Irma Vep, which harks back to more romantic days (before Scary Movie 1 through 28), is a delightfully comedic take on the good, old fashioned Penny Dreadful genre of days gone by.
