“When I was a boy, I was afraid of the dark …. What was there. And maybe one of the things I thought was there were vampires “
An eccentric, teasing yarn of play from the multi-award-winning author of The Weir.
When a jaded Dublin theatre critic (Alexander) abandons his ordinary life in pursuit of a beautiful young actress. His desires lead him to strike an irreversible bargain with a band of modern-day vampires.
Is it all a drunken lie? A tantalizing fairy tale? His own version of a higher truth? Or an endless confession amidst a self-imposed purgatory.
“…. a delectable droll celebration of storytelling as striptease…” New York Times
McPherson’s chilling and spellbinding vampire tale features award-winning actor, Craig Alexander (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, Venus in Fur) who shares the stage with the inimitable singer/songwriter, guitarist, banjo and harp player, and storyteller himself, Den Hanrahan (Den Hanrahan and The Rum Runners)
