Romantic, Quirky, Indulgent, Absorbing, Enchanting

See it if You're looking for a little sweetheart of a show in a marathon, solo fairytale telling. A solid descendant of centuries of storytelling.

Don't see it if Audience eye contact freaks you out.

Great acting, Epic, Quirky, Enchanting

See it if you love ambitious alliterations in vivid voices, folk tales, and LGBT characters where the "LGBT" isn't their 1 defining characteristic.

Don't see it if you don't like flowery poetic language, or following the names and places of in-depth fantasy world building (a la Lord of the Rings).

August 14th, 2016

"'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."
