In this wacky gothic comedy about success and intolerance in America, Jonica Wolf, an aspiring comedian, on his way to Hollywood with his fiancé Sandra, drops in on his home village of Fallowfield, PA to stop his creepy Mom from reopening the family coal mine and unleashing an ancient curse. However, when the family secret is outed – along with a colony of threatened Long-Eared bats – Jonica must decide between good and evil, a choice which could determine the future of the town, the nation, the Cosmos – but more importantly, his income stream. This eerie play, both serious and fun, with audience participation, asks the question: in today’s world, who is the real vampire?
