Karl Vitomir, an exceptional but unknown actor, is hired to play the lead role in the infamous Jacobean revenge tragedy Let It Fang. But the presence of the mysterious Vitomir quickly becomes problematic when company members mysteriously disappear, and life begins to imitate the bloody art of Jacobean depravity and revenge.
Let It Fang, Part 1: Theatre of Blood by David Berkson is the first installment of a new work that creates two distinct worlds: a hitherto undiscovered 1623 revenge tragedy, and a modern theatre company’s bloody struggle to bring that play to the stage. Let It Fang, Part 1: Theatre of Blood combines the supernatural conventions of vampire fiction with the heightened language and imagery of 17th Century verse, as well as the sensibilities of old-fashioned backstage comedy.
