The Mystery of Irma Vep
By Charles Ludlam
This hilarious spoof of Gothic melodrama is a quick -change extravaganza in which two actors play all of the roles! A vampire, an Eqyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened, a kind werewolf, make this comedy an evening of hilarity, intrigue, and pure delight!
“This is the kind of fun that gets people hooked on theater in the first place.” – Zachary Stewart, TheatreMania

"With its joyful embrace of melodramatic theater and cinema, it's easy to see why Irma Vep borrows freely from Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, Wuthering Heights, Shakespeare, Victorian penny dreadfuls, and the entire canon of American vampire, mummy, and werewolf movies. It is simultaneously subversive of and tributary to all these forms, resulting in a theatrical smorgasbord that will have you rolling in the aisles."
Far and away the funniest two hours on a New York stage... What more meaningful gift could Ludlam bequeath [audiences] than to leave them eternally laughing.
"A really good laugh... The story has to be seen to be believed." -The New York Post
"A true vaudeville tour de farce... It's wonderful."
"Lunatic fun that keeps you in stitches."
"A hearty mixture of thrills, laughter and extravagant showmanship."
