Mystery of Irma Vep

The comedy Mystery of Irma Vep will be on the boards at Theatre on the Bay from Thursday August 3 to Saturday August 19.

On a remote manor called Mandacrest, something is amiss.

Between the horrors of a marauding beast terrorising the estate and the looming presence of the recently deceased former mistress Irma Vep, matters become awkward in the extreme for the Lord Edgar and his new wife, Lady Enid.

All the residents of the Mandacrest estate travel from the moors of England to the tombs of Egypt and back again, encountering along their way a host of vampires, werewolves, mummies and all manner of things that go bump in the night.

All the lunatics, beasts, ghouls and gentlefolk are played by only two actors, the lightning-witted Jonathan Roxmouth and the inimitable Weslee Swain.

Ticket prices range from R100 to R180. Booking through Computicket.
