Charles Ludlam’s side-splitting comedy explodes onto the stage with outrageous sets and costumes, plot turns and twists.
A two-person spoof starring Jonathan Roxmouth and Weslee Swain Lauder as the residents of Mandacrest estate who meet vampires, werwolves and mummies on a journey to the tombs of Egypt. This play, that harks back to more romantic days (before Scary Movie), is a delightfully comedic take on the good, old fashioned Penny Dreadful genre of days gone by.
