"'The Vampire’s Last Bite' is a cheerful and skilled rendition of a young boy’s coming of age...Martin J. Flowers’ engaging performance of his own work shows why the old stories and songs must have been a treat around the fireside. His original script is playful and dramaturgically grounded...The pleasure of this well-spun yarn presents a very satisfying theatre experience for audiences of all ages."
"Brilliant storytelling…The play has a classic fairy-tale charm with modern themes that are married perfectly. From stage to page, Flowers is a wondrous storyteller...This story isn't always the easiest to grasp...Puppets or ensemble movement, something to accompany Flowers and his story would elevate it to great heights. It's already in a great place and can be even better...'The Vampire’s Last Bite' is a diamond in the rough."
