Warmbloods is available to enjoy during the Bram Stoker Festival, which runs from 30 October to 2 November 2020.
A darkly comedic tour from two lady-like members of Dublin’s vampire community, Anne and Winifred, who’ll escort you around their favourite corner of the National Gallery of Ireland. Your guides regret that they cannot be with you in person, but promise to whisper in your ear and lead you astray in visions of exposed flesh, murder, darkened rooms, storms and a cruel-to-be-kind dissection of your ‘warmblood’ mortal nonsense and obsession with immortality.
They also have opinions on bridge, needlework and long-term best friendship.
Warmbloods is a special Bram Stoker Festival edition of an ongoing series of comedy tours in the Gallery.
Warmbloods is written and performed by Underthings (Debbie Cheevers and Denny MacDermott) an improv/sketch duo from Dublin. They specialise in dark, domestic comedy and hard stares.
Suitable for ages 12+
