Welcome to the official website of The Village Players @ The James McCabe Theater
A darkly menacing, suspense-filled "penny dreadful" thriller, which reaches back into the lives of Mary Shelley and her husband, the famous poet Percy Shelley, who once shared a villa on the shores of Lake Geneva with the notorious Lord Byron. To pass the time, Byron suggested that they each write a "ghost story." Mary produced the famous Frankenstein. Her husband lost interest in the undertaking, but Byron toyed with a "vampyre story." Such a work did eventually appear, but Byron denied authorship. In truth, the chilling tale was written by the nobleman's physician, John Polidori, who detested Byron and designed the story to discredit the roguish poet. Polidori's novella, upon which the present play is based, is considered the prime source of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
