More recently David has given me access to a video shot of the play being performed by Harlequin Productions of Cayuga Community College. The play was directed by Robert Frame.
The familiar story of the vampire Carmilla (Niki Baker-Lanning) coming into the life of the innocent Laura (Meg Owren) was cleverly transported to Austria in the 1930/40s. When I read the play I was also impressed with the way David had framed the story with a clever use of flashback interacting with a foreground that sees Laura interviewed by Allied Captain Martin (Donovan Stanfield). This was even more so after watching the way Harlequin production cleverly used a central stage area, which seemed to really draw the audience into the play.
