Haunted by the mysterious death of his young wife, the great writer of odd psychological ghost and mystery tales Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu stays up late, drinking green tea and writing, the victim of an increasingly disturbing series of nightmares and hallucinations about dying in Phoenix Park, Dublin. One night, walking alone there, he comes across Carmilla, a mysterious and seductive young woman who claims to be an actress abandoned by her company. He takes her home to be his secretary, but gradually begins to realize that she seems to be at once the embodiment of a vampire girl he has written about, his troubled and seductive sister-in-law, and a ghostly figure his wife kept seeing in the mirror before her death. Reality and memory mix with nightmares, hallucinations and creatures from his dark stories of murder and the supernatural as Le Fanu struggles towards the truth in a vortex of horror, with special appearances by Richard Brinsley Sheridan and Emmanuel Swedenborg. An eerie, erotic, frightening and sometimes funny mystery. Be careful what you write. In LeFanu's Dream & Other Plays.
