The Shadow of Carmilla - Scáth an tSúmaire
By ThereisBear! Theatre Company
Ireland, in the mid 1800s - a society caught between science and superstition.
Josephine, the daughter of the local landlord, lies weak in a hushed room. Her father is a rational man, but all his power cannot protect her from mysterious, devastating attacks.
The watchful servants are disinclined to share what they know. As Josephine's life drains away, these women are torn between saving a life and risking their livelihood to name what it is they fear: an ancient horror that haunts their home...
This bi-lingual reimagining of Sheridan Le Fanu’s classic vampire story Carmilla transports the action to the wilds of post-famine Connemara, where language and culture clash, and suspicion lurks in the shadows.
