The Mystery of Irma Vep

Yelena Sayko ’10 writes:

The Wesleyan Theater Department presents The Mystery of Irma Vep, directed by Associate Professor of Theater Cláudia Tatinge Nascimento. On a stormy night at Mandacrest estate, Lord Edgar Hillcrest and his new bride Lady Enid are haunted by the memory of the Manor’s first mistress—Irma Vep. In Charles Ludlam’s camp parody of classic Hollywood film and Victorian supernatural literature, two male actors play the British couple, bizarre servants Jane Twisden and Nicodemus Underwood, a werewolf, a mummy, a vampire, and more. With lightning-quick costume changes and razor-sharp comic timing, this wicked spoof is sure to be a howlingly funny night of theatre.
