The Vampire & Mrs Riley

It was perhaps the most bizarre pairing in the history of Cinema. Arthur Lucan, a British drag act and Bela Lugosi, fading Hollywood horror star, were thrown together to make a cheapo B movie called Mother Riley Meets the Vampire.
But beneath the washerwoman's apron and the vampire's cloak are two men who stand at the crossroads of life. Their moments of greatness are behind them and a frightening future lies ahead. When the cameras stop rolling and the lights fade, all they have is each other.

A new play from the team that has brought 11 productions to the Mill including The Man Who Left the Titanic, The Haunters, Dracula the Panto and Probably the Best Comedy Songs in the World Ever, Maybe.
