The Mystery of Irma Vep

A theatrical penny dreadful by Charles Ludlam. This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas is a quick change marathon in which two actors play all the roles! A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened make this a comedy that has everything. Directed, performed, and designed by local artists from Mount Desert Island.* Directed by Zabet Neucollins and Nathanael Lee.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
