Thick & Thin Theatre present a new play about democracy, power and… vampires.
DETAILS

They’ve come to drain your blood… and your pension fund.


In a not too dissimilar world to our own, where clunky metaphors are realised, Whitehall has been infiltrated by clans of bloodsucking creatures vying for control of the masses. After a by-election is triggered in the West Country constituency of Milford, vampires Frank Maynard and Jonathan Laurence emerge as the two front-runners for

While fresh-faced Frank is groomed for governance by his short-fused campaign manager Julian Webster and ex-flame Susan Baker, Jonathan relies on his own Machiavellian methods of power brokering to assure victory at any cost, helped by his trusty if sarcastic aide Joanna Foster. With intrepid reporter Fiona Ripinsky hot on their trails and the campaign causing unexpectedly non-vampiric problems, the two candidates will soon realise that politics can be one bloody affair…
