The Mystery of Irma Vep (3rd – 11th May)

Blue Orange Arts brings you the camp classic that brought Broadway to its knees!

Discover the ludicrous mystery deep within the moors of the Hillcrest Family Estate at Mandacrest. Lord Edgar, an Egyptologist, widowed and on his second wife, is not over the passing of his first, Irma Vep. Edgar is consumed by the sudden death of his beloved and the strange events happening around the grounds of the manor.

The Mystery of Irma Vep is a gut-busting hilarious farce full of high-camp Victorian melodrama, Gothic romance, classic horror films, and two actors changing roles 35 times.

The perfect spring-time tonic!

Pay What You Can

 Blue Orange Arts is committed to accessibility of our in-house productions and as such we offer a ‘pay what you can’ performance for all of our shows.

‘Pay what you can’ is designed to help people access the theatre who could not necessarily do so otherwise, it is not ‘pay what you want’ and we ask, if you are able to afford it, that you help the charity continue its work by paying full price (or more if you are really generous!)

‘Pay what you can’ tickets are available on the door, you can book the performance in advance but only at standard prices. We will always reserve at least 50% of the tickets for purchase on the day.
