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
