Theatre Group Quinta presents ‘The Mystery of Irma Vep’, a satirical play by Charles Ludlam.
What: The Mystery of Irma Vep
When: Until March 12
Where: Theatro Dentro, 44 Enotitos Street, Palouriotissa, Nicosia.
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.
Performed in Greek, the show will take place on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8.30pm, until March 12.
Tickets cost €15 / €10. For information and reservations call 70006069. Theatro Dentro, 44 Enotitos Street, Palouriotissa, Nicosia.
