The former lady of the house is haunting the place, everyone is turning into werewolves, and somewhere there is a trip to Egypt thrown in. That’s the premise behind The Mystery of Irma Vep. This Victorian melodrama features at least 60 costume changes per actor and delights the audience with quick changes and a lot of laughs. Veteran actor Steven Epp takes us behind the wig!
