The Mystery of Irma Vep
Theater Group Quinta presents "The Mystery of Irma Vep", a play by Charles Ludlam. It is a satire of several theatrical, literary and film genres, including Victorian melodrama, farce, the penny dreadful, Wuthering Heights and the Alfred Hitchcock film Rebecca (1940). The title is the name of a character in the 1915 French movie serial Les Vampires and is an anagram for the word "vampire."
The play is written for two actors who, between them, play eight characters of both sexes. In order to ensure cross-dressing, licenses to perform the play include a stipulation that the actors must be of the same sex. The show requires a large number of sound cues, props, special effects and quick costume changes.
