Literary detectives will also recognize dialogue lifted from Ibsen, Shakespeare, Poe, Oscar Wilde and many contemporary twists. This family-friendly, horror-comedy has two actors (Damian Gillen & Benji Regan) play all of the play’s eight characters, racing through a literal quick-change marathon…Combine all that with crazy plot twists & inspired audience interactions… “The Mystery of Irma Vep” guarantees fun for everyone!
