UNTITLED SPARKLY VAMPIRE PLAY

3-21 MAY

Izzy is trying to run a Twilight book club. She’s sunk a lot of man hours into it. It really has to go well. Only her secret boyfriend, Edward Cullen, keeps interrupting the proceedings with an identity crisis. Ashley Milne’s Untitled Sparkly Vampire Play is a explosive reaction to compulsory heterosexuality, obsessive teenage girldom, and the feeling of being young and entirely alone.
