A Myth Revisited: 'Vlad the Impaler' in Glasgow and Brighton

15 - 20/05/2015

A fresh, imaginative take on Marin Sorescu’s revisionist examination of one of Middle Age’s most enigmatic heroes,'Vlad the Impaler', staged by intrepid theatre veterans Faynia Williams and Richard Crane, opens in Glasgow at the famous A Play, A Pie and A Pint on 27 April before a stint in the Brighton Fringe Festival between 5-10 May.

Critically acclaimed Cary Crankson joins masterful Jack Klaff, in the title role, and intense Anna-Maria Nabirye in a performance based on Romanian author’s 'The Third Stake' and produced by Brighton Theatre in association with Òran Mór and with the support of Arts Council England and the Romanian Cultural Institute. The original music is penned by Romanian composer Vlad Maistorovici.
