The Mystery of Irma VepBy Charles Ludlam

The man who has no secrets from his wife either has no secrets or no wife…

In the halls of the Mandacrest Estate, Egyptologist Lord Edgar Hillcrest and his second wife Lady Enid reside with their comically severe maid Jane, each of them concealing a lurid secret about Hillcrest’s first wife Irma Vep.  Without warning, an intruder bites the attention-starved Enid, and the curious death of Hillcrest’s son begins a snowball effect of massive mysterious proportions.   Answers lurk in the most unconventional places, and secrets unravel revealing sensational intrigue in a grand who-done-it style adventure.  Ludlam’s penny dreadful combines high camp with Gothic horror making this complex melodrama a satirical and vampirical delight.
