The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful
A Farce by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Amie Elizabeth Bello
September 13 to 17, 2011
Convocation Hall (in Theological Hall), Queen’s University
This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas, recently revived Off-Broadway to rave reviews, 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.
Starring Clayton Garrett and Steven Spencer
