Blood on the Cat's Neck: Marilyn Monroe vs. the Vampires

  • Theatre

Time Out says

Trap Door Theatre International is a newly formed group of international artists who have come together thanks to Artistic Director Beata Pilch to present their first production as a new ensemble. 'Blood on the Cat's Neck' is an absurdist play originally written in the early 1970s by German playwright Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It explores the question of how an alien from outer space might see Earth and its inhabitants. The alien in question takes the form of an attractive (and nude) woman named Phoebe Zeitgeist, herself an alien vampire taken from a 1960s comic book, who learns to speak from less-than-ideal examples of humanity at a cocktail party. Travel along with Phoebe as she sinks her teeth into a cast of lovers, models, teachers, soldiers and other unwitting victims.
