The Mystery of Irma Vep

August 14 – September 14

Playhouse Downtown

In the tradition of the Greater Tuna series, two actors rush through a series of quick changes, accents and genders to bring you this fast-paced farce. Set on the dark moors in England’s Victorian era, this hilarious comedy was first staged by New York’s Theatre of The Ridiculous and stars Scott Treadway and Preston Dyar.

Content Advisory – 

The play takes place in a deserted house on the moors of England and it is a hysterical farce, VERY thinly disguised as gothic horror story. The humor is farcical and quick-paced. There is no real profanity in the show, but the script is laced with double entendre and winks toward “the serious theatah.”

 

FRP-Miss Saigon
