By Ry Herman

Directed by Tara Ayres

Co-produced by StageQ and Mercury Players Theatre, Vamp is a vinyl-clad supernatural girl-meets-girl romantic comedy. Chloe is becoming increasingly irritated by the imaginary people living in her apartment, including a bathrobe-clad Jesus and the annoyingly perky Spunky Old Gal. When she meets Angela, a Goth astrophysicist, at a nightclub, the two hit it off and begin dating. All goes well until they discover that they have been keeping disturbing secrets from each other.

Vamp will run in repertory with "Cloud 9" by Caryl Churchill.
