A ridiculous whodunit turned theatrical satire
The Mystery Of Irma Vep’s a much-loved, campy classic written by Charles Ludlam in 1984. It’s a theatrical farce that ranges from absurd to totally batshit crazy as the cross-dressing cast goes through as many costume changes as they do genres trying to figure out who or what killed Lady Enid. Not to mention this comedic whodunit’s been known to incorporate vampires, ghosts, mummies, and werewolves. Can't say we're not intrigued by the ludicrousness of it all. Best available reserved seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
"The play’s joy is its unabashed theatricality – the production achieves divine lunacy."
