The Mystery of Irma Vep

Director: Div Collins
Playwright: Charles Ludlam
Performance Season: 25 May - 9 June

The show is set in the English country estate of Lord Edgar Hillcrest. He's a widower, having lost his beloved wife, Irma Vep. He's recently remarried Lady Enid, a stage actress still uneasy with her new position as Lady of the manor. Indeed, her maid, Jane, doesn't think she'll ever measure up to Lady Irma. Meanwhile, Lord Edgar is disturbed by strange happenings out on the heath, including the monthly disappearance of his groundskeeper, Nicodemus. Fearing the estate is haunted, Lord Edgar goes on an expedition to Egypt to discover the secrets of what truly lies behind the mystery of Irma Vep.


The play is a wonderful theatrical smorgasbord, combining Hammer horrors, Shakespeare, Wuthering Heights, and the Victorian Penny Dreadful. With impossibly quick costume changes, it soon soars to dizzying heights of ridiculousness - a hilarious spectacle of ludicrous proportions.

Playwright: Alistair Faulkner
Performance Season: 17 August - 1 September

Rose is a charming and dignified old maiden lady, who, after many years of being on her own, is living out her twilight years in a country nursing home which has strong links to her younger days.

As Rose's health declines, past and present in her mind begin to melt into one. She recalls vivid memories of the Great War and we learn something of her family life, her time as an ambulance driver, her love for a young Flying Corps pilot and the heroic exploits of her Flying Corps ‘Ace’ brother, through several flash-back scenes.


The quiet atmosphere of the nursing home is brightened by the humorous flirtations of a young nurse and her boyfriend and the flash-backs highlight the very different attitudes to life and romance which separate the two generations of young people.
